Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 18: The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday claimed to have arrested four people for procuring medical seats in Pakistan for students of Kashmir through Hurriyat leaders to fund terror outfits.
Four people have been arrested in connection with procuring MBBS seats for students from Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan via Hurriyat and terror funding.
The arrested persons have been identified as Mohammed Akbar Bhat alias Zafar Bhat, who is chairman of the salvation movement, Fatima Shah, Mohammed Abdullah Shah, and Shabzar Ahmed Sheikh were arrested. Brother of Mohammed Abdullah Shah went to Pakistan in the 90s and working as a facilitator of Hurriyat.
Every year over 100 students from Kashmir Valley go to Pakistan for higher studies especially MBBS. In the year 2020, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had unearthed the scam between students, Pakistan High Commission officials, and separatists of Kashmir Valley.
The NIA had termed admissions of students from Jammu and Kashmir to medical institutions in Pakistan on the recommendations of separatists as an alternative mechanism of terror funding in the Valley.
After getting authentic inputs that some Hurriyat leaders were selling Pakistan-based MBBS seats with the connivance of educational consultancies, the Counter-Intelligence Kashmir had registered a case in July 2020.
According to police, during the investigation, it was established that the money collected from the parents of the aspiring or potential students was used to support and fund terrorism and separatism in different ways.
While investigating this case vide FIR number 05/2020 under section 13, 17, 22A, 40 Unlawful Activities Prevention Act read with section 4 of Prevention of Money Laundering Act, many significant facts emerged.
Police claimed that on average the cost of a seat ranged between 10 to 12 lakhs. In some cases, the price was brought down after the intervention of Hurriyat leaders.
“Based on available evidence, a conservative estimate indicated that the money involved could be around Rs. 4 crores per annum. Every year minimum of 40 MBBS seats were allocated to Hurriyat leaders”, official sources said.
“The investigation has also revealed that both at the time of collecting the money from the parents as well as channeling it for use by terrorists and separatists, intermediaries were used to hiding the transactions. For example, in some cases, money was received through educational consultancies to conceal the end-use”, official sources said.
