3 NIA Officers Transferred For Allegedly Taking Bribe In Terror Case
New Delhi: 

Three National Investigation Agency (NIA) officers have been transferred for allegedly demanding Rs 2 crore in bribes to exclude a Delhi-based businessman linked to a terror-funding case involving Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

The action against the officers has come after a complaint of misconduct was received by the agency. A detailed investigation into the allegation is being conducted by a DIG-rank officer. The officers have been transferred to ensure a fair probe.

In a chargesheet filed last month, the agency had named seven persons, including Hafiz Saeed, on charges of criminal conspiracy under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The document states that FIF Mahmood tasked associates Mohammed Kamran, a Pakistan national from Dubai, with routing funds from Pakistan to India via Dubai.

The SP under the scanner, who was earlier the chief officer investigating the 2007 Samjhauta blast case, had conducted searches against the Delhi businessman, with two junior officers from the intelligence and operations wing of the NIA.
