Delhi: An Indian court is set to sentence top Kashmiri leader Mohammed Yasin Malik in a terror-funding case, GNN reported.
According to details, a special court in Delhi convicted Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik on May 19 after Yasin had pleaded guilty to all the charges including the ones under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).
Following the charges, the court directed Yasin to disclose all the sources of his income and declare all his assets by filing an affidavit.
The court also asked India's National Investigation Agency (NIA) to find out about Yasin's financial situation, so that it could decide the amount of fine to impose on him
Yasin had refused to accept the charges, including Section 16 (terrorist act), Section 17 (raising funds for a terrorist act), Section 18 (conspiracy to commit a terrorist act) and Section 20 (being a member of a terrorist gang or organization) of the UAPA and Sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and 124-A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code.

Scandal-ridden Boris Johnson agrees to step down as British PM
Boris Johnson agrees to quit, will be 'caretaker PM' till October
London: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to resign on Thursday, with his office saying he will make a statement to the country.
According to details, Boris Johnson will announce his resignation as British Prime Minister after he was abandoned by ministers and his Conservative Party's lawmakers who said he was no longer fit to govern.
Johnson had been hanging onto power despite the resignation of a string of his top ministers.
On Thursday the man he appointed as finance minister less than 48 hours earlier publicly urged Johnson to quit.
"The Prime Minister will make a statement to the country today," said a spokesperson.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace also called on Johnson to quit but said he would stay in his role to protect national security.
Sun Political Editor Harry Cole said Johnson was aiming to carry on as prime minister until a new leader was chosen later in the summer, a task that can take up to two months.
With eight ministers, including two secretaries of state, resigning in the last two hours, an isolated and powerless Johnson was set to bow to the inevitable and declare he was stepping down.
"His resignation was inevitable," Justin Tomlinson, Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party, said on Twitter. "As a party we must quickly unite and focus on what matters. These are serious times on many fronts."
The revolt this week was triggered by revelations about the prime minister's handling of sexual misconduct allegations against former Deputy Chief Whip Chris Pincher.
It is pertinent to mention here that Boris narrowly survived a no-confidence vote among Conservative MPs last month. Total 211 voted for the prime minister but a staggering 148 stood against him.

Govt set to announce comprehensive National Solar Policy on Aug 1
"The government was committed to making the country self-reliant in energy generation"
Islamabad: The government is set to announce a comprehensive National Solar Policy on August 1 to provide cheap and environmental-friendly electricity to the general public.
The decision was taken by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif as he chaired a high-level meeting of the Energy Task Force aimed at addressing the problems of energy shortage in the country.
The implementation of the National Solar Policy will be subject to approval by the Council of Common Interests.
The meeting was attended by Federal Minister for Energy Engineer Khurram Dastagir, Finance Minister Miftah Ismail, Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, Petroleum Minister Mussadik Malik, and the officials concerned. The chief secretaries of four provinces joined the meeting through a video link.
PM Sharif directed the task force to get feedback from the provinces on the draft solar policy and stressed ensuring unanimity of views at the provincial level on the projects of alternative energy generation.
Also, it was decided to shift the Prime Minister’s Office and the PM House to solar energy within one month.
The prime minister said the government was committed to making the country self-reliant in energy generation.
He mentioned that solar power was a clean and green way of electricity generation and said the solar projects would mitigate the issues such as distribution losses, power theft, and circular debt.
PM Sharif said affordable solar power would reduce the burden of inflation on the common man.
The meeting was informed that a proposal for converting the fuel-based powerhouses and the 2,000 feeders of 11 KV to solar generation was on the cards.
Switching the government buildings to solar power generation was also discussed in detail.
It was told that in the next 10 years, solar plants with 1,000 megawatts generation would be installed at the government buildings on a BOOT (Build-Own-Operate-Transfer) basis.
The meeting also discussed the proposals for B2B (business-to-business) and mini solar grids.
It was highlighted that a plan to convert 30,000 tube wells in Balochistan to solar power was under consideration with a cost of Rs 300 billion.
The meeting also discussed the proposal to provide solar plants to individuals with a facility of net-metering.
