New Delhi : The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday moved an application in a Delhi court, stating that the nine people arrested with demonetised currency worth Rs 36 crore in November last year are not linked with terror funding case.
Although they will be released by the NIA, they will now be tried for offences connected with demonetised currency.
The nine people were arrested in Delhi after the agency got an input about their activities while investigating a case relating to the financing of terror activities in the Kashmir valley.
During the investigation, it emerged that the people and entities linked to separatists and terrorists were still in possession of a significant amount of demonetised currency notes that could not be converted into new ones.
A total of seven persons were initially apprehended and brought to the NIA headquarters for further questioning. Three other associates of this gang were apprehended later in the evening yesterday and were brought for questioning to the headquarters. (ANI)
