Sringar/Jammu and Kashmir, August 16: As a follow-up action in the terror-funding case, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is conducting searches today at 12 locations in Srinagar, Baramulla and Handwara.

NIA also conducted raids on their and other separatist leaders houses after a formal FIR was registered following alleged admission in a sting operation by Nayeem Ahmad Khan, chairman of National Front (NF) that separatists were receiving funds for terror activities in Kashmir from overseas. Further details are awaited.

They were arrested on the charges of criminal conspiracy and waging war against India. The NIA has already questioned Hurriyat chief Syed Ali Shah Geelani's son-in-law Altaf Shah, separatists Mehrajuddin Kalwal and Peer Saifulla.

Islam is a close aide of Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

The agency has alleged money received from Pakistan was being used to fund violence in the Kashmir, including an operation to increase stone pelting on security forces and arson that largely targeted schools and government buildings. The disclosure by Khan led to NIA raids at several places in Delhi, Haryana, Jammu and Srinagar. Electronic devices and valuables worth crores of rupees were impounded.

It was the first time since the rise of militancy in the early 1990s that a central probe agency conducted raids in connection with the funding of terrorist and separatist groups.
