NIA raids 56 locations in J&K against Jamaat-e-Islami in terror funding case

In one of its biggest operations in Jammu and Kashmir, National Investigative Agency (NIA) conducted raids in over 50 locations in 14 districts linked to banned outfit Jamaat-e-Islami in connection with a terror funding case. The NIA sleuths, assisted by J&K Police and CRPF, conducted raids at the residences of members of Jamaat-e-Islami, an outfit that was banned by the central government in 2019 due to its pro-Pakistan and pro-separatist leanings.

The raids were conducted in Srinagar, Budgam, Ganderbal, Baramulla, Kupwara, Bandipore, Anantnag, Shopian, Pulwama, Kulgam, Ramban, Doda, Kishtwar and Rajouri districts. Jamaat-e-Islami was looking to fund terror outfits such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Hizbul Mujahideen in J&K.

Jamaat-e-Islami wanted to increase terrorist and stone-pelting activities in the Valley, which have declined after the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019.
