London: Britain is "liaising" with US authorities on the activities of Kashmir groups here following the arrest of Kashmiri separatist leader Ghulam Nabi Fai by FBI in Washington for allegedly being an ISI agent.

 "After we received a communication from the US Department of Justice, we are liaising with the US authorities (on Kashmir centres in London)," a spokesman of the Scotland Yard told on Friday.

He said no formal investigation has been launched against the London-based Kashmir lobby group Justice Foundation, with which Fai, Director of the Kashmiri American Council, was actively linked.

A few years ago, a probe was launched against the sources of funding of the Foundation, which is accused of financing 'jihadi' groups that have been launching attacks against India in Jammu and Kashmir.

Fai, 62, and Zaheer Ahmad, 63, both US citizens, were charged with conspiring to act as agents of a foreign power in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act of US.

Fai, with the help of Ahmad, allegedly funnelled ISI's cash into the US to influence the American policy on Kashmir.
