New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday filed a charge sheet against Aasiya Andrabi, Sofi Fehmeeda and Naheeda Nasreen of Dukhtaran-E-Millat (DEM), a proscribed terrorist organisation, in special NIA court here.

According to the charge sheet, Andrabi, chairperson, DEM, and her associates Fehmeeda, Nasreen and others were actively running the terrorist organisation against India.

“DEM, as a terrorist organisation, is engaged in anti-India activities and has been inciting the general populace of Kashmir for an armed rebellion against the Government of India, with aid and assistance of terrorist organisations based in Pakistan,” NIA said.

According to the investigating agency, all the accused were using various social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and also TV channels including some in Pakistan to “spread insurrectionary imputations and hateful messages and speeches” against India.

“DEM, through Aasiya Andrabi and others, openly advocates secession of Jammu and Kashmir from the Union of India and its merger with Pakistan through violent means. The investigation has established that Aasiya Andrabi is heading Dukhtaran-E-Millat as its chief and has used social media and other platforms to abet waging of war against the Government of India. She is spreading seditious and insurrectionary imputations against the Government of India,” NIA added.

In its charge sheet, NIA said, “The investigation has also established that she (Andrabi) has close contacts with designated global terrorist Hafeez Mohammad Saeed who is the head of Jamaat-Ud-Dawah (JuD) and Lashkar-E-Toiba (LeT), internationally designated terrorist organisations that are based in Pakistan.”

The NIA investigation has claimed that "Sofi Fehmeeda, as personal secretary to the chief of DEM and also press secretary of DEM, and Naheeda Nasreen as its general secretary are promoting ill-will and enmity between different communities in India on grounds of religion. They have collected funds to carry out terrorist activities of DEM."
