J&K: NIA raids multiple locations in NGO terror funding case


 The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids at several places in Kashmir on Tuesday in an NGO terror funding case, officials said.

They said that nine locations in several districts of J&K were raided by the anti terror agency. The raids were carried out by sleuths of the NIA with the assistance of police and the CRPF.

More details about the raids are emerging.

Officials said the case relates to NGOs and trusts diverting funds meant for charitable activities to “secessionist and separatist activities” in Jammu and Kashmir.

The case was registered on October 8, 2020, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) on receiving “credible information that certain NGOs and Trusts are collecting funds domestically and abroad through so-called donations and business contributions” and then using them to fund terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Some of these NGOs have links with proscribed terrorist organisations such as Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), etc. Further, funds collected by such NGOs, Trusts, and Societies are sent to Jammu & Kashmir through various channels, such as cash couriers and hawala traders based in Delhi, Jammu & Kashmir, and other parts of India, to sustain the secessionist and terrorist activities in the Kashmir Valley, as a part of a larger criminal conspiracy hatched by these NGOs, Trusts, and Societies, etc., prejudicial to the unity, integrity, sovereignty, and security of India,” the officials added.
