The searches were conducted in an ‘NGO terror funding’ case. Parvaz is already in jail in a ‘terror-funding case’ and was charge-sheeted in May last year.

Following the first arrest made in the funding case on March 20, 2023, the National Investigation Agency arrested Khurram Parvez, the program coordinator of Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Societies (JKCCS) and chairperson of the Philippines-based NGO Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD).
