The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has conducted searches at about a dozen locations in Jammu and Kashmir in connection with a terror funding case against separatist leaders and others.

NIA-Logo-720x340Officials in the central probe agency said the searches are being carried out at 12 locations in Srinagar, Baramulla, and Handwara.

They said those being searched on Wednesday, have alleged links to persons being investigated in the case.

The NIA had arrested seven persons on July 24 in the case of alleged funding of terror and subversive activities in the Kashmir Valley to fuel unrest.

The money was being raised to fund separatists and terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir, the NIA alleged.

The agency claimed that the accused were waging war against the country and were involved in various offenses punishable under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

NIA also said that the accused were involved in creating unrest by way of anti-India demonstrations and bandhs.
