Yasin Malik convicted in terror funding case.

Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik was today convicted by a Delhi court in a terror funding case levelled against him.

The judgment comes after Malik pleaded guilty to all charges on Tuesday, including those under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

The special court also directed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to assess his financial situation in order to determine the amount of fine to be imposed.

The court will hear the arguments on the quantum of sentence on May 25.

Malik had told the court that he was not contesting the charges levelled against him, which included Section 16 (terrorist act), 17 (raising funds for terrorist act), 18 (conspiracy to commit terrorist act) and 20 (being member of terrorist gang or organisation) of the UAPA and Sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and 124-A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code.
