The defence experts on Monday said that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) raid at Jammu and Kashmir Social Peace Forum (JKSPF) chairman, Devinder Singh Behl?s house shows the dedication of the Central Government to eradicate the evil of terrorism.
?As the NIA has said and as the policy of India has become, it is a good news that these raids are being carried out. It indicates the seriousness and dedication of the Central Government to eradicate this evil of terrorism. Perhaps, more is yet to come, because now a number of other problems will also be solved,? defence expert Praful Bakshi told ANI.
Another defence expert P.K. Sehgal said that it is a clear indication that substantial evidence has been collected by the NIA already to nab Geelani.
?The next person to be called or arrested by the NIA will be Syed Shah Geelani. Ever since these raids have been carried out, these stone pelting incidents have also come to a halt,? Sehgal added.
Earlier on Sunday, the NIA interrogated the chairman of the JKSPF, Devinder Singh Behl, at his resident here over his suspected connections with separatist elements.
The NIA also conducted searches at various premises of Behl, who is also a member of the legal cell of the Hurriyat. He is a close associate of a top Hurriyat leader and regularly attends funerals of militants.
During the searches, the NIA team recovered four mobile phones, 1 tablet, other electronic devices, incriminating documents, financial papers and some other articles.
The NIA is investigating into his role as courier as he is suspected to be involved in routing funds to the separatist leaders from Pakistan-based handlers.
