Kochi: The National Investigation Agency
(NIA), probing various terror cases in Kerala, has informed the state High Court that Pakistan national Abdul Rehman was the matermind in the Kashmir recruitment case of October
2008 and had arranged funds for anti national activities in India.

Rehman alias Wali is the 24th accused in the case relating
to the recruitment of some Keralites for terror activities in Kashmir. Four keralites-- Fayas, Abdul Rahim, Mohammed Yasin and Fayes, who were recruited were killed in an encounter with security forces.
The statement was filed before the court by NIA while
opposing the bail application moved by C E Abdul Hameed, an
accused in the Kashmir recruitment case.
It was submitted that Hameed had impersonated as Mohammed
Yusuf and had received the other accused in the case in New
Delhi and had made arrangements for their accommodation until
they left for Kashmir to get further training under the
Lashker-e-Taiba.
