Srinagar: Shahid Yousuf, the son of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, was arrested by the NIA today in connection with its probe into terror funding case.
Yousuf was summoned by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to appear before it for questioning, officials said.
He was subsequently arrested here, the officials said.
The NIA is probing funding, including through hawala channels, for activities in Kashmir Valley. It has registered multiple cases in this connection.
Yousuf’s father Mohammed Yusuf Shah — better known as Syed Salahuddin — was in June this year declared a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the US Department of State.
