Police have filed a chargesheet against Hizb-ul-Mujahideen supremo Mohammad Yousuf Shah alias Syed Salahuddin before NIA court Baramulla in connection with a case regarding threatening Panchs and Sarpanches for participating in Panchayat elections ten years ago.
A police officer told a local news agency, Global News Service (GNS), that police filed the charge sheet before the Special Judge for NIA (Additional Sessions Court) Baramulla.
The case (FIR 241/2012) was registered in Police Station Baramulla under 506 RPC and 13 UAP Act against Salahuddin for “threatening” Panchs and Sarpanchs through posters in Kashmir Valley to “compel” them not to contest elections.

He said the police was also in process of filing chargesheet against the Hizb chief in another similar case (FIR No. 251 of 2012) in Pattan. (GNS)
