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.
