New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday (August 8) accomplished raids at multiple locations in Jammu and Kashmir.
An NIA official related to the investigation said that the agency investigators along with the CRPF are searching at multiple locations in 14 districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
The anti-terror investigation agency is performing searches at the premises linked to senior members of banned terror organizations Jamaat-e-Islami.
An official mentioned that the searches are ongoing at least 40 locations, according to news agency IANS.
Searches are being executed in Doda, Budgam, Kishtwar, Ramban, Anantnag, Ganderbal, Shopian, Rajouri and other districts of the union territory.
Searches are being held at the premises of Gul Mohd War, a resident of Manigam Ganderbal, who is the district head of JEI; Abdul Hamid Bhat, a resident of Gamchipora Batweena; Zahoor Ahmad Reshi, JEI member and ex-teacher now running a store at Safapora; and the premises of Mehrajdin Reshi in Safapora.
Reshi is an ex-terrorist and now runs a store.
Recently, the NIA has accomplished searches at different locations in two different cases and also detained a few people.
The Jamaat-e-Islami is an organization that was prohibited by the central government in 2019 due to its pro-Pakistan and pro-separatist leanings.
A supreme DIG and a team from Delhi had flown to Srinagar before the surprise attack.
Previously on July 10, the NIA had detained six people from across Jammu and Kashmir in connection with a terror funding case.
This comes a day after eleven employees of the Jammu and Kashmir government were terminated for having terror links.
