The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is conducting searches at several places in Jammu and Kashmir as part of its continuing investigation into the terror funding case.
Srinagar: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted searches in at least eight districts of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday in connection with a terror funding investigation involving the suspicious operations of the Al Huda Educational Trust in the Union territory.
The searches were carried out in collaboration with the Jammu and Kashmir Police Department and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
The searches were in Rajouri, Poonch, Jammu, Srinagar, Pulwama, Budgam, Shopian, and Bandipora. The case is linked to Al Huda Educational Trust’s questionable actions in the Rajouri area.
The NIA allegedly opened an investigation into the financing pattern and operations of Al Huda Educational Trust, which serves as a facade body for Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu & Kashmir. In 2019, the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir were designated as an ‘unlawful association’ under UAPA.
The NIA’s various teams conducted these searches based on particular inputs.
According to local media, the NIA searched the homes of a famous religious speaker and rector, Darul Uloom Raheemiyyah Bandipora, Moulana Rehamtullah Qasmi, and Samam Ahmad Lone, professor at NIT Srinagar.
