Early Times Report

Jammu, July 7: Separatists selling medical and other seats reserved in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to members of influential families in Kashmir has opened another can of worms.
According to the details available with Early Times prior to NIA crackdown on Hawala channels, separatists were earning huge money by recommending children of influential people for admission in the medical colleges in the hostile neighbouring country.
The 'reserved' MBBS seats which were offered in Pakistan were meant for the orphans, whose parents were killed in the conflict in Jammu and Kashmir. However, it has been revealed that separatists sold the seats reserved for the orphans for Rs 10 lakh to 20 lakhs, media reports stated on Tuesday.
Separatists, according to the media reports, allegedly used to take money and from bureaucrats, top police officers and other influential people and send the recommendation letter to Pakistan so that their children could easily get admission into medical colleges.
It may be recalled that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had accessed various recommendation letters by separatists for Pakistani visas for students from Jammu and Kashmir during the raids which it conducted before and after August 5, 2019.
The investigating agency had stated that it was another way for funding of terror groups.
The probe agency had earlier claimed that the visa applications were recommended to the Pakistani high commission in India by various Hurriyat leaders, including Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
The successor of Geelani in PoK had alleged that the rival faction of the separatist outfit was selling seats to professional courses in Pakistan.
The NIA had unearthed the scam that involves the nexus between students, Pakistan High Commission officials and separatists in the Valley two years back.
The NIA in its charge sheet had alleged that the students going for the MBBS courses were ‘either relative of ex-militants or relatives of families of active militants’. The NIA has alleged that the money received from the influential was routed to fund terrorism in the Valley.
While red-flagging the authorities about the nexus between terrorists, the separatist and the Pakistan establishment, the NIA had said, "the three vertices and they are ostensibly patronising the Kashmir students in order to prepare a generation of doctors and technocrats in Kashmir who will have leanings towards Pakistan,” a national news channel reported.
