New Delhi: Security agencies may soon question human rights activists, a Kashmiri separatist leader and journalists who allegedly enjoyed hospitality of Ghulam Nabi Fai arrested in America on charges of being an outfit of Pakistan's ISI.

Government is likely to give a green signal to their quizzing after the examination of the affidavit submitted by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in a US court.

Sources in the Home Ministry said the affidavit is being examined and a decision to question Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, who had been attending various seminars organised by Fai with the latest one being this year, may be the first one to be examined.

Welcoming the arrest of 62-year old Fai by the US authorities, Home Ministry officials said "heat" of this development would soon be felt by the Kashmiri separatists.

A resident of Wadwan, Soibug in Budgam in Cenral Kashmir, Fai had migrated out of country in early eighties after he found no-takers for his separatist ideas.

Sources in the Ministry said some journalists were also taken to the US for attending the seminars hosted by him.
