NIA conducts more raids in Kashmir

Posted September 08, 2017

A day after three top Kashmiri separatist leaders said they would court arrest outside National Investigation Agency headquarters in New Delhi on September 9, the NIA on Thursday conducted fresh raids on residences of separatist leaders and traders at 10 locations in Jammu and Kashmir in its ongoing investigation into the militancy and separatist funding in the State.

Early in the morning, a NIA team conducted searches at the residence of Hurriyat leader Agha Syed Hassan in Budgam.

The NIA since yesterday conducted searches at seven places in Srinagar and on outskirts in the Valley, where the agency has arrested two alleged stone pelters on Tuesday in connection with terror funding.

The agency had in July arrested seven pro-freedom leaders and a prominent local businessman in connection with the probe into the funding case.

Meanwhile, sources said that the protesting people have called for a protest on Friday against the harassment by NIA to the Aga family.

The NIA sleuths seized FDs worth Rs 1 crore and other incriminating material during the raids and searches. "Mr. Qayoom is more than 65", reads the letter written by Anwar-ul-Islam Shaheen, joint secretary of the association.

Senior Hurriyat leader Shabbir Shah's aide Zameer Thakur's house was also raided by NIA.
