New Delhi:

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has been scrutinising five bank accounts allegedly linked to hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani as part of its probe into suspected terror funding.

Financial experts have been roped in to scan these accounts - two of Geelani and the rest owned by other persons linked to him, official sources said on Thursday.

Some suspicious transactions have been found under the preliminary investigation. To evade the details, some transactions don’t bear depositors names.

NIA sources claimed that the patterns of transactions- both deposits and disbursals were suspicious.

A preliminary enquiry has been registered by the NIA to probe flow of funds into various bank accounts from overseas which in turn was allegedly being used for anti-national activities in parts of Kashmir.
