NIA Court grants 15 day judicial remand of Dy Jail Superintendent


Jammu, Sep 6: Special Judge NIA Haq Nawaz Zagar today sent Deputy Superintendent of Amphalla Jail Feroz Ahmed Lone and IshaqPalla, who was arrested by the NIA in an alleged terror conspiracy case, to 15 days judicial remand.
Special Judge NIA Court Jammu after perusal of the application moved was "genuine" and remanded the accused to judicial custody for 15 days and ordered that both the accused persons shall be kept in District Jail Amphalla Jammu.
While granting remand, Court observed that the prayer made by the NIA seems to be genuine and as such, the present application is allowed. Feroz Lone was arrested by the National Investigating Agency for allegedly conniving with the main accused, IshaqPalla, to send Kashmiri youths Suhail Ahmad Bhat and Danish Ghulam Lone to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir for arms training to wage war against India. A meeting in this regard took place on October 25, 2017, at the Central jail, Srinagar, where Feroz Lone, a resident of Budgam, was then posted as Deputy Jail Superintendent, the NIA said. "Palla, a resident of Shopian, was lodged in the Srinagar jail in a different case and he was instrumental in hatching the conspiracy from there. He was actively assisted by Feroz Lone," alleged the agency. "The case pertains to an attempt by Bhat and Danish Lone, who were arrested earlier, to travel to PoK for arms training to wage war against the state. They were motivated by Palla," the NIA said. Bhat and Danish Lone were arrested by Jammu and Kashmir Police in Kupwara district near the Line of Control while trying to cross over to PoK on October 30, 2017. They were reportedly going to join the militant outfit, HizbulMujahideen. The NIA said the duo was in constant touch with each other through the blackberry messenger during the entire month of October before being apprehended. JNF
