NIA conduct raids at two places in Srinagar

Srinagar, Sep 2 (UNI) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday raided several houses of Cross-Line of Control (LoC) traders at two places in summer capital Srinagar, official sources said.

They said police and Central Paramilitary Forces (CPMF) sealed Dandarkhan Batmaloo before sleuths of NIA raided the house of Mohammad Ayub Matta, Ghulam Ahmad Dar and Ishfaq Ahmad Dar, LoC traders. Raid continued for about an hour, they said, adding that it was not immediately clear if incriminating document was recovered during the raid.

The NIA sleuths also raided a house of Mushtaq Ahmad Khan, also a LoC trader at Mandar Bagh in the old city today. Raid continued for about an hour.

The NIA and Enforcement Directorate (ED) have arrested about 30 traders and separatists in connection with terror funding.

The cross-LoC trade between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) was terminated in March 2019 by Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) following intelligence reports that trade was being used for narcotic smuggling and terror funding.
