Srinagar, August 14, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Enforcement Directorate (ED), a Delhi-based law enforcement and intelligence agency, has summoned Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and a Srinagar-based couple in a fake case dating back to 2001. According to Kashmir Media Service, the agency has asked Yasin Malik and the couple to present themselves or their authorized representative on 5th and 6th of September at the ED’s Raj Bagh office, Srinagar.
A letter addressed to them reads: “This is to inform you that after considering the cause shown by you to the show cause notice, the Assistant Director is of the opinion that adjudication proceedings as contemplated in sub section 1 of section 13 the Foreign Exchange Management Act 1999 should be held against you.”
The letter continues that if any of the three persons neglects or refuses to appear as required by sub rule 3 before the adjudication authority, proceedings will be initiated against them. Last year, when ED issued notice, JKLF chairman termed the case against him a drama. He said the notice was issued after Hurriyat Conference formed the parallel election commission to prove its representative character. He said he was arrested under a well-orchestrated drama and shifted to a Jammu jail under so-called Prevention of Terrorism Act, 2002 (POTA).
