Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Watali has been using diversionary tactics and throwing big names during his interrogation. Watali was arrested by the National Investigation Agency on the ground that he was a facilitator of the funds being sent by the ISI into the Kashmir Valley.

Kashmir businessman Watali got Sharif for Modi's swearing in: Good joke says NIA

He takes the names of politicians and speaks about how well connected he is. He baffled the NIA when he said that he was instrumental in bringing former Pakistan Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif to India for Narendra Modi's swearing in as PM in 2014.

These are classic criminal tactics that such persons use, NIA officials say. We have seen many such cases and hence this comes as no surprise to us, NIA officials also said.

Watali is the 8th person to be arrested in the Kashmir terror funding case. He will now be questioned along with the others arrested. There is enough material on hand to suggest that he had played a key role in the funding. He was close to ISI officials and several politicians in Pakistan. He would also pick up money from the high commission and remit it into the accounts of separatists for a commission of 9 per cent, sources also informed.
