In a major crackdown on terror-funding in the Valley, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday conducted fresh raids at multiple locations in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district. Raids are underway at the premises of suspects in Baramulla and other locations. This is the second day when the central agency has carried out searches in the Valley.
On Wednesday, the NIA carried out raids at four places in connection with a case related to cross-LoC trade and terror financing. The agency spokesperson informed that the searches were conducted at three locations in Baramulla and one in Handwara in Kupwara district.
According to the agency, the searches were carried out on suspects who generated additional profits through trade across the Line of Control (LoC) between Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and used the proceeds for fomenting terrorist activities in the Union territory.
