SRINAGAR — In a major crackdown in Jammu and Kashmir, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday raided multiple locations with the assistance of J&K Police and CRPF in Jammu and Kashmir in connection with a case of banned organization Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI).
Reliable sources informed Srinagar-based news agency KDC that the sleuths of NIA with the assistance of police and CRPF raided the house of Ghulam Mohammad Bhat (85) son of Mohammad Jabbar Bhat at HIG Colony Bemina in Srinagar. The raid carried out by the agency is related to the JeI.
In south Kashmir’s Anantnag, the NIA team raided the house of Mudasir Ahmad Dar son of Ghulam Hassan Dar, a resident of KV-pora Marhama.
The other team headed by Inspector Patail searched the house of Ghulam Quadi Wani son of Abdul Salam Wani, a resident of Goosu Pulwama as he was affiliated with JeI. The NIA team also raided Thokerpora Rajpora in the house of Shameem Ahmad Thoker son of Ghulam Nabi Thoker, who is a government teacher.
Another NIA team searched the house of Mansoor Ahmad Dar son of Late Mohd Maqbool Dar, a resident of Wanbal Nehama in Kakapora. At Nehama, the houses of Mushtaq Ah Rather son of Assadullah Rather and Abdul Rashid Malik son of Ghulam Ahmad Malik are being searched by another team of NIA.
The agency also raided the house of Abdul Rashid Malik son of Ghulam Ahmad Malik at Daferpora Newa. He is said to be the close relative of Advocate Zahid (JeI), a resident of Nehama Kakapora who is presently under Public Safety Act (PSA).
In north Kashmir, the house of Ubaid Khazir Malik son of Khazir Mohd Malik at Warpora Zachaldara, Handwara is being searched by the nation probing agency.
The raids are being carried out at other locations in Jammu and Kashmir, of which details will be shared later.
An official confirmed the raids and said that further details will be shared after the conclusion of the raids.
The Centre had banned the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir in 2019 for five years under an anti-terror law on grounds that it was “in close touch” with militant outfits and is expected to “escalate secessionist movement” in the state.
