Terror funding case: NIA searches 11 more locations

NIA continues raids in Kashmir

The residents of Shariatabad Budgam on thursday stormed into the residence of Aga Syed Hasan, senior Hurriyat leader where NIA slueths were conducting a raid and raised massive slogans against the investigating agency.

The development has come just two days before the separatists had planned the "Delhi Seize" - "Delhi chalo Aandolan" in wake of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) raids in Srinagar and Delhi as part of their terror funding probe.

The separatist leader, however, said his arrest would not break the spirit of the freedom loving people of the state.

Meanwhile, sources said that the protesting people have called for a protest on Friday against the harassment by NIA to the Aga family.

Mittal said that during the NIA searches, "FDs (fixed deposits) worth over Rs 1 crore and a lot of incriminating material, suspect financial records, property-related documents and electronic devices were seized".

Qayoom on Wednesday appeared before the NIA in New Delhi. Both Mr. Alsafvi and Mr. Sumji are associated with the Hurriyat led by Syed Ali Geelani.

SHO Budgam Rafi Ahmad told Kashmir Reader, "The NIA team left the residence of Agha Hassan around 7pm and reached Srinagar safely". "The raids continued for over 9 hours", they said.




They said that the move was to counter the NIA's "harassment".

All roads leading to the house of Aga Hassan, a Shia leader, were closed before the NIA personnel arrived there.

Houses of a chartered accountant and two businessmen were also searched in Kashmir.

Searches are still on and the suspects are being questioned about the incriminating recoveries made from them.

Three senior separatist leaders, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik have announced they would take out a protest march to the NIA headquarters in New Delhi and court arrest on September 9.

The NIA sleuths raided residences of businessmen Abdul Khaliq Mir at Kralpora, Kupwara and Ghulam Rasool Magray and his neighbour Amin Magray of Sudarpora Kandi, Kupwara. The raids were also conducted on house of Firdous Iqbal Wani of Illahibagh Buchpora, Srinagar; Sajad Syed Khan of Ummarabad Zainakoote HMT Srinagar. The house of Salamabad cross-LoC traders Union President, Hilal Ahmad Khan (Turki) was also raided at Natipora, Nowgam.

The case was registered on issues of raising, receiving and collecting funds through various illegal means, including hawala channels, for funding such activities.
