From extortion to trust, separatists exploring options to survive
Hawala channels choked

Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 10: The scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes has choked the separatists in Kashmir and now they are looking for alternate ways and means to generate money.
Sources told Early Times that security agencies are keeping a close vigil at the bank accounts of separatists who are running short of ideas. "The separatists comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik have mooted the idea about forming a trust. They have asked the traders and hoteliers to charge Re 1 to Rs 5 extra from every person and pass it on to them to make a trust to help people," sources said.
They said under the garb of this trust these separatists want their bosses sitting across the Line of Control (LoC) to provide them with monetary help so that they can fill their coffers by hoodwinking everyone. "They (separatists) have already made their idea public and are desperate to implement it. On the other hand the agents of separatists are approaching the top notch businessmen and others to seek "Karchaa" (money) to make their ends meet," sources said, adding, "They are now resorting to extortion due to money not flowing through Hawala channels."
Insiders revealed
It's all about money
The ripple effects of demonetization have sent the separatists to tizzy as easy money is not flowing into JK anymore. Their henchmen are extorting money from people, while separatists have asked traders and hoteliers to charge extra money from shoppers as fund for them.
hat Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has passed on clear instructions to security agencies to tighten their noose over the money being pumped into Kashmir through Pakistan and from gulf countries. "A few separatists are sending feelers to Delhi that they are ready for talks and their passports should be released so that they can visit the gulf countries. Some of them have even got it conveyed that they would keep their foreign trips a secret affair and no one would come to know about it," sources said.
They said, "MHA has made it clear that no leverage should be given to the separatists and their attempts to generate money and get aid from any country should be foiled."
Security agencies, sources said, have advised the government not to allow these separatists to form any trust. "There is every possibility about this trust being used to fund anti-national activities in Jammu and Kashmir. To help the people is just an excuse to mint money."
Sources said that government is not allowing Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik to meet foil their designs as most of their henchmen are out of prisons and they are looking for new ways and means to foment trouble to blackmail central and state governments.
