11 weeks after threats against NIA arrests
Separatists confined to publicity only

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 23: Eleven weeks have passed since they threatened to protest in New Delhi against NIA arrests, the separatists have preferred to remain confined to mere publicity despite the anti-terror agency did not show any leniency.
On September 6, three separatists announced that they would present themselves before the National Investigating Agency (NIA) in New Delhi on September 9 for court arrest against the investigations by the probe agency.
However, as the NIA did not show any leniency, the separatists have now maintained silence.
"That was a pressure tactic by the separatists. But the investigating agency did not show any soft approach and arrested several other separatists since the leaders threatened to go to New Delhi and hold protests," a police official said.
The official said that if the separatists were willing to go to New Delhi, they should have gone during the last 11 weeks. "Actually, this was only a publicity stunt to get the media publicity. If they want to go, why should they tell the media first? They are free to go," the police official said.
The official said that separatists knew that NIA won't provide them same treatment they get in the state. "Last year, the JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik also slapped a police officer. But he knew that he can't dared to even talk on a high pitch to cops outside Kashmir," the officer said.
"We (Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik) will leave for New Delhi on September 9 and will present ourselves before the NIA. We are not afraid of NIA," Yasin Malik had said on September 6.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had said that Kashmiris were being "humiliated" through a media trail.
"A propaganda, intimation and harassment to our family members, friends and people associated with us have been initiated by the Government of India. The NIA has been issuing summons to Kashmiris to put pressure on leadership," Mirwaiz had said.
He had said that Kashmiris were not scared of getting arrested or to be in jail. "The arrests and summons by the NIA is a tactic to keep Kashmiris away from the movement. Indian can't defeat us by such tactics," he said.
He had said they would go to New Delhi and hold protest outside the NIA headquarters.
