A Delhi court on Friday sent Kashmiri separatist leaders Shabir Shah, Masrat Alam Bhat and Asiya Andrabi to judicial custody till July 12 in connection with a terror funding case.
They were presented before Additional Sessions Judge Anil Antil, on expiry of their 10-day National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody. The NIA requested the court to send them to judicial custody.
Citing poor health, Andrabi requested the court to appear before it through video conference for the next hearing. The court asked the defence counsel to approach the concerned court after vacation.
Shah, Bhat and Andrabi was arrested on June 4 in connection with the terror funding case, which the NIA registered in May 2017 after violence erupted in the Kashmir Valley.
