Geelani`s take on Ghulam Nabi Fai`s guilty plea
Srinagar: Ghulam Nabi Fai may have pleaded guilty before a US court on federal charges of spying for the ISI but pro-Pakistan Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani sees an Indian hand in this development.
The 62-year-old Fai, a US-based Kashmiri separatist
leader, has pleaded guilty before a Eastern District Court of
Virginia to the charges of prosecutors that he received at
least USD 3.5 million from Pakistan`s intelligence agency
between 1990 and 2011 which resulted in a revenue loss of
between USD 200,000 to 400,000 to the US government.
Geelani claimed in a press release that the US court
had pronounced him guilty because of diplomatic pressure from
New Delhi unaware of the fact that Fai himself had pleaded
guilty and that his sentencing was scheduled for March nine.
In his guilty plea, Fai had told the US court that he
was in direct contact with the ISI officials including the
head of its security directorate.
Fai conceded receiving talking points from ISI
regarding what to say and write. He agreed that he received
directions from ISI with regard to which specific individuals
to invite for the conference of Washington-based Kashmiri
