Terror and hawala: Three convicted
A Delhi Court has convicted three persons in a 2011 terror funding case and sentenced them for the period already undergone.
District Judge Poonam A Bamba held Mohd Sadiq Ginai, Ghulam Jeelani Liloo and Farooq Ahmed Dagga guilty in the case.
According to the prosecution, the trio collected funds from Pakistan through illegal hawala channels to be sent to Jammu and Kashmir for promoting unlawful activities in the state.
The court had in 2012 framed charges against them under various sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
The NIA had in 2011 filed the charge sheet against the trio, indicting them for collection more than Rs 4.57 crore from Pakistan through hawala channels within three years for funding terrorist activities in the Valley.
The NIA had said Ganai developed a close relationship with one Delhi-based Raj Kumar and his brother-in-law Rajeev Nankani and motivated them to collect money on their behalf from hawala operatives.
