Court grants 30 days judicial custody of PDP leader Parra

Jammu: Special Judge NIA Sunit Gupta today grants 30 days judicial custody of PDP leader Waheed ur Rehaman Parra who was arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA) for allegedly conspiring with Hizbul Mujahedeen militants to get their support during the 2019 parliamentary elections.

Parra was booked by NIA in a case related to his alleged “close links” with Irfan Shafi Mir, who was arrested along with Hizbul Mujahedeen militant Naveed Babu and suspended Deputy Superintendent of Police Davinder Singh earlier this year, officials said.

According to the NIA, during the investigation into Singh’s association with Hizbul Mujahedeen militants, the NIA came across phone records of Mir which showed that he was in close contact with Parra.

Special Judge NIA Jammu Sunit Gupta after perusal of the application moved by the CIO and the CD files, granted thirty days to judical remand. JNF
