NEW DELHI: Syed Shahid Yousuf, son of Syed Salahuddin, the chief of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen has been sent to judicial custody till November 27 by Special National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court on Tuesday.
 
Earlier on October 25, the NIA court had sent Yusuf to a seven-day remand in a 2011 terror-funding case.
 
Yusuf, a Jammu and Kashmir government employee, was found to have been receiving and collecting funds through international wire money transfer from Saudi Arabia-based Hizbul Mujahideen member Aijaz Ahmed Bhat.
 
Bhat is wanted in India for funding terror activities in the Kashmir Valley.
 
The NIA already filed two charge sheets against six other accused in this case in 2011.
 
Out of these accused, two are in custody and others, including Salahuddin, are absconding and residing in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
