NIA nabs one more in connection with LeT probe, gets six days custody

Thursday, February 08, 2018

New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency has arrested an alleged hawala operator from Uttarakhand in connection with its probe into the activities of Pakistan- based Lashker-e-Taiba in India, an official spokesperson said here today.

Abdul Samad, the fifth person arrested in the case, was nabbed in Haridwar yesterday and brought to Delhi where he was produced before a designated court.

The court yesterday sent the suspected LeT member, a resident of Bukkanpur village in Uttarakhand's Haridwar district, to six days NIA custody in the case of alleged fund raising for terror activities.

Special Judge Tarun Sahrawat remanded 22-year-old Samad to the custody of the agency, which said he was required for sustained custodial interrogation.

Samad is a leading hawala operator, operating in the area of Muzaffarnagar, Deoband and Roorkee, who was acting as the conduit of an LeT financier based in Saudi Arabia through his cousin in that country, the NIA spokesperson alleged.

In November 2017, he allegedly collected Rs 3.5 lakh from hawala operators in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, to deliver it to Shaikh Abdul Naeem, an active LeT member.
