Srinagar, March 11 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat forum Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has decided not to appear in person before the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and instead submitted a written response to the probe agency through his legal counsel.

His legal counsel in his response to the notice said, “The notice (to Mirwaiz) appears to have been issued on the basis of fallacious assumptions and misinformation solely aimed at maligning the Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir, knowing his status and position, it appears to be the outcome of considerations other than the law. My client is not acquainted with the subject matter…”

He said it was unwise for his client to travel to Delhi “under the prevailing conditions of hostility wherein there is a threat to the personal safety of my client”.

“If the NIA wants to examine my client Mirwaiz Umar Farooq they can do so in Srinagar. He is willing to cooperate as he has nothing to hide,” said the counsel.
