Accused of aiding ultras, PDP leader Parra chargesheeted


Jun 2, 2021

Srinagar, June 1

The police on Tuesday filed a chargesheet against senior PDP leader Waheed-ur-Rehman Parra in a case related to the alleged nexus between politicians and terror groups in the Union Territory.

Officials said Parra had been chargesheeted by the Criminal Investigation (Kashmir) wing of the CID under various sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, dealing with waging war against the country and threatening peace. The chargesheet was submitted before the competent court which has taken cognisance of the document.

Parra has been in judicial custody since his arrest earlier this year. The CIK had filed the case last year against unknown politicians and others based on “reliable and confidential sources” who said some political functionaries had been misusing their power and helping Pakistan-supported militants and secessionist organisations operating in the UT for a number of reasons.

It was also alleged in the case that the conspiracy was hatched for furthering the politicians’ clout among the local populace, countering the influence of rival political parties and their members, protecting their own financial and business interests and with medium-term motives of winning the trust of “the Pakistani establishment, dealing with subversion in Kashmir, including those in the United Jihad Council”.

These politicians have allegedly supported terrorists and secessionists, directly and sometimes through middlemen, by way of paying money and organising select physical attacks through militant  elements, it was alleged. They also facilitated movements of militants and transportation of their arms and ammunition.
