PDP’s Wahid Parra involved in paying terrorists for political gains, alleges NIA
NEW DELHI :
THE NIA has alleged that PDP youth leader Wahid-ur-Rehman Parra is involved in “dirty” gunrunning, providing finance to terror groups and being “part of the larger conspiracy” hatched by Pakistan-based terrorist outfits to make “inroads” into important institutions in Jammu and Kashmir to carry forward their secessionist agenda.
According to a supplementary chargesheet filed at a Jammu court recently in the terror funding case, which also involves a Deputy Superintendent of Police, Davender Singh, the agency has listed Parra’s activities since 2010 and alleged that he had formed a group of 20 to 25 youths who indulged in stone pelting during protests at his behest. This was done by Parra to yield political mileage for himself from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the National Investigation Agency (NIA) alleged.
The party was in the Opposition in 2010 in the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir. It may be mentioned that in 2010, an agitation had taken place against the killing of three youths in the Macchil area of north Kashmir and they being labelled as terrorists. The protests, in which 126 lives were lost, were carried out despite police filing a chargesheet against Army personnel.
