New Delhi, Aug 10 (IANS) A Delhi court on Saturday sent former Jammu and Kashmir Independent lawmaker Sheikh Abdul Rashid alias Rashid Engineer to National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody till August 14 in a terror funding case involving 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Mohd. Saeed.

Rashid was in the Patiala House Court before Duty Magistrate Dharmendra Singh, who awarded his custody to the terror investigators for four days. The agency, however, demanded Rashid's 10 days remand.

NIA had registered a case of terror funding two years ago. It said that terror outfits active in Pakistan namely Lashkar-e-Taiba, Hizbul Mujahideen along with ISI had provided funds to separatist leaders to foment trouble in the Valley.

The chargesheet in the matter was filed in January last year.
