The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today carried out raids at multiple locations across Jammu and Kashmir in connection with the funding of anti-India activities. Jammu and Kashmir Police and CRPF are also assisting the NIA .
Raids were conducted at over 45 places across J&K including Doda, Kishtwar, Ramban, Anantnag, Budgam, Rajouri and Shopian. People linked with Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) are being raided .
AIR correspondent reports, NIA team has flown from New Delhi to Srinagar to conduct the operations.
The investigating body has seized documents and digital devices and it is said to be one of the biggest crackdowns against Jamaat-e-Islami- an outfit that was banned by the central government in 2019 due to its pro-Pakistan and pro-separatist leanings.
Earlier on July 31, the NIA raided 14 locations in connection with J&K cases related to the recovery of IED and the arrest of Lashkar-e-Mustafa top commander Hidayatullah Malik.
