NEW DELHI: A special court here today took cognizance of the NIA charge sheet against LeT chief and 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, Hizbul Mujahideen head Syed Salahuddin and others in the terror funding case.
They have been accused by the NIA of “conspiring to wage war against the Government” and fomenting trouble in the Kashmir Valley.
Additional Sessions Judge Tarun Sherawat directed the anti-terror probe agency to hand over copies to the accused persons, and posted the matter for March 8 for scrutiny of documents.
