NIA arrested PDP's youth wing president Waheed Para on Nov 25, 2020 in connection with the case involving jailed DSP Davinder Singh case. PDP youth wing president Waheed Parra was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on November 25, for alleged links in a terror case involving a Hizbul Mujahideen commander.

The NIA called Parra in New Delhi for questioning a day after he filed his nomination form for the upcoming District Development Council (DDC) elections from Pulwama in South Kashmir. NIA said Parra's arrest was made in the case registered against suspended Jammu and Kashmir Police DSP Davinder Singh, arrested Babu on January 11. The New Indian Express quoted an NIA officer as saying, "Para’s questioning is regarding the financial angle in the case."

Singh was arrested while ferrying two Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists in a vehicle on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway earlier this year. Para’s name in the case reportedly cropped up during questioning of another accused Tariq Mir, a former BJP leader accused of supplying arms to Babu.
