President of the Jammu & Kashmir High Court Bar Association (J&K HCBA) Mian Qayoom has returned to Srinagar, after being summoned for questioning by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Lawyers of the Association had resolved to go on strike last week when Qayoom was taken in for questioning in an alleged terrorist funding case. They had boycotted court work for four consecutive days from September 4 to 7 and were supported by lawyers of all the District and Mufassil Bar Associations of Kashmir.

The High Court Bar Association also made a representation to Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra pointing out the procedural oversight that occurred when the NIA summoned Qayoom. The notice was made under Section 160 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the proviso to which states that persons over sixty-five years may be questioned at their residence. Qayoom, who is over 65 years of age, was directed to be present for questioning in Delhi.
