New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted raids at 16 places in Srinagar and Delhi on traders who were allegedly indulging in hawala operations and using the money for terror funding and case related to it.

Of the 21 people, 17 are from Kasargode district in the northern tip of Kerala

In Delhi, the searches were being conducted in the Shadipur depot and Khari Baoli area

“NIA teams searched 11 locations in Srinagar and five in Delhi. They are related to the Jammu and Kashmir terror funding case. The searches are still going on,” said an NIA official.

In Srinagar, the raids were being carried out at the offices and residences of Bashir Ahmad Kaloo, Showkat Ahmad Kaloo, Abdul Rashid Bhat, Firdous Iqbal Wani, Sajad Syed Khan and Imran Causa.

In Delhi, the searches were being conducted in the Shadipur depot and Khari Baoli area at the residences and office premises of Ganga Bishan Gupta, Firoz Akhtar Siddiqui and Sunil Kumar Jain, the officer said.

The raids come a day after the NIA arrested two people, including a freelance photo-journalist, who allegedly indulged in stone pelting and mobilised support against security personnel through social media. The arrested individual had uploaded a video wherein he had allegedly burnt the Indian national flag.

The NIA in July arrested several separatist leaders in connection with the probe into the terror funding by Pakistan-based terrorist groups to stoke unrest in the Kashmir Valley.
