NIA court in Jammu frames charges against journalists Fahad Shah, Ala Fazili

Srinagar, March 18 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a special court of India’s dreaded National Investigation Agency (NIA) has framed charges against two Kashmiri journalists, Fahad Shah and Abdul Ala Fazili, in connection with a fake case of sedition.

The Special Judge of NIA court, Jammu, Ashwani Kumar, framed the charges against the two journalists in the sedition case registered against them by New Delhi-controlled State Investigation Agency (SIA), last year.

Officials said that the case pertains to an article ‘The Shackles of Slavery Will Break’ written by Abdul Aala Fazili and published in the digital magazine (portal) ‘The Kashmir Walla’ through its Editor-in-Chief Fahad Shah.

They claimed that the two journalists had been spreading the anti-India narrative through digital platforms.

The NIA had booked Fahad Shah and Abdul Ala Fazili under different sections of Indian Penal Code and draconian law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) on various charges including unlawful activities and waging war against India.
