NEW DELHI The NIA Thursday handed over copies of electronic and documentary evidence to Dukhtaran-e-Millat head Aasiya Andrabi in a case against her for allegedly waging war against the country.
The National Investigating Agency (NIA) supplied the documents, flied along with the charge sheet, to Andrabi and her two associates — Sofi Fehmeeda and Naheeda Nasreen — on the court’s directions.
The agency also informed special judge Rakesh Syal that a report from Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Chandigarh was awaited and would be handed over to her later.
The accused were produced before the court. The three are currently lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody.
The court has now put up the matter for further hearing on March 5 for scrutiny of documents.
The three were arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir Police in April last year and the case was later transferred to the NIA in July.
According to the NIA, Andrabi, Fehmeeda and Nasreen were using various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube and TV channels, including some in Pakistan, to spread “insurrectionary imputations and hateful messages and speeches against India”.
