The National Investigation Agency has arrested Syed Shakeel Ahmad, who is the second son of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin.
The arrest was made on Thursday morning after the NIA raided Shakeel’s house in Rambagh area of Srinagar. He is being brought to Delhi for further questioning.
The NIA, along with local police and CRPF, raided Shakeel’s home early morning and arrested him.
Shakeel is a senior lab technician at the Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinagar.
NIA sources say Shakeel was called in for questioning on at least three occasions, failing which agency sleuths swooped down to arrest him.
Last year, the probe agency arrested Salahuddin’s elder son Syed Shahid in the same money laundering case. He is currently lodged in the Tihar Jail in Delhi.
