Mirwaiz appeared before the National Investigation Agency for the second consecutive day on Tuesday for questioning in connection with a case related to funding of terror groups and separatist organisations in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to NIA officials, Mirwaiz was asked to appear before the agency on March 11 and March 18, but he expressed his inability to join the investigation in Delhi, maintaining that he fears for his security in view of “conditions of hostility”.
Responding to NIA's third summon in the past one month, Mirwaiz agreed to come to Delhi for the investigation. He had refused two summons, earlier, citing safety concerns and asked to be examined in Srinagar.
