During this operation, seven locations in Srinagar, Budgam, Kupwara, and Pulwama districts were targeted.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is currently conducting raids at multiple locations in Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir, in relation to suspected terror links and terror funding cases, officials announced on Friday.
The ongoing operation is part of a broader investigation into the alleged raising of funds to sponsor terrorist activities in the region. Further details about the raids are yet to be released as the investigation is still ongoing.
Earlier this week, on Tuesday, the NIA conducted extensive searches in four districts of the Valley as part of the NGO terror funding case. The focus was on identifying and curbing the flow of funds to support terrorist organizations.
During this operation, seven locations in Srinagar, Budgam, Kupwara, and Pulwama districts were targeted. The premises of various Trusts and individuals associated with the Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Societies (JKCCS), an NGO suspected of raising funds for banned terrorist organizations, were searched thoroughly, according to the NIA.
As NIA’s investigations continue, the authorities are determined to root out all sources of funding that aid in promoting and executing terrorist activities. The NIA is expected to release further updates on the ongoing raids and their outcomes as soon as they are available.
