Srinagar, Jun 04 (KNO) : National Investigation Agency (NIA) Tuesday arrested Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) incarcerated chairman Shabir Shah and produced him before a special court in Delhi, a spokesman of the amalgam said. According to a statement issued to KNO, spokesman said that NIA official called wife of Shabir Shah and informed him about the arresting of Shabir Shah under RC 10. “Shabir Shah was arrested by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in July 2017 and he was soon shifted to Tihar Jail Delhi where he is lodged till date,” he said. JKDFP spokesperson while strongly reacting to the arresting of its party chairman, Shabir Shah said that arresting political leader in fresh cases while he is already behind bars proves that New Delhi and its government institutions want to punish Shabir Shah for fearlessly advocating right to self determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that such cheap acts cannot deter Shabir Shah from advocating the rights of the oppressed people. Meanwhile, according to a statement issued to KNO, Dr Bilquees Shah, wife of Shabir Shah said that Shah was arrested by NIA from Patiala court to NIA headquarter for remand till June 13.(KNO)
