New Delhi, March 7 (IANS) Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani was Wednesday questioned here for recommending a Pakistani visa for a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist arrested for allegedly plotting a terror attack in the capital, police said.

“Geelani reached Lodhi Road office of the Special Cell around 3 p.m. today and was let off after 15 minutes of questioning,” said an investigation officer.

Police earlier found a copy of Geelani’s recommendation letter with Ahtesham Malik, one of the two alleged Lashkar terrorists arrested in Delhi.

According to police, the 24-year-old Malik was in Pakistan last summer. He went on a valid passport — which police said was a new Lashkar strategy of sending recruits from the Kashmir Valley to Pakistan, with legal papers, for “arms and explosives training”.
