The brother of the alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant Sandeep Sharma, who was arrested in Jammu and Kashmir, has been held for questioning over Rs 2 lakh bank deposit, police said on Friday.
Praveen, who works as a taxi driver in Haridwar, was taken into custody here yesterday.
Police found a bank account in Haridwar in which Rs 2 lakh was deposited from Mumbai some months ago. There were also two transactions of Rs 50,000 each in the account.
Sandeep Sharma alias Adil was arrested by J-K Police on Monday.
Earlier, Sharma’s mother Parvati and sister-in-law Rekha were also interrogated by a team of the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS).
Parvati had told reporters here that, “If my son is a militant he must be punished. Due to his actions we are facing problems and shame.”
Both Parvati and Rekha work as domestic workers in the district.
Sharma, alias Adil, had left the district in 2012 and told his family that he was earning Rs 12,000 per month in Jammu. His father died in 2007.
