New Delhi: The NIA court in New Delhi today awarded life imprisonment to Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik.
Malik was presented before Special NIA Judge Praveen Singh of Patiala House Court amid tight security in connection with the terror funding case.
In the arguments before the sentencing, Malik told the court that he will accept hanging if the intelligence agencies prove any terror-related activities involving him.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) meanwhile told the court that Malik is responsible for the Kashmiri Pandits’ exodus from the Valley as it argued for the death sentence for him.
Yasin Malik has been charged with hatching a criminal conspiracy, waging war against the country, other unlawful activities, and disturbing peace in Kashmir.
