NIA searches at multiple locations in J&K

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday carried out searches at multiple locations in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

An NIA official related to the probe said that the agency sleuths along with the CRPF are carrying out searches at multiple locations in several districts. The official, however, remained tight-lipped on sharing the details of the case.

An agency source said that the anti-terror probe agency is carrying out the searches at the premises linked to senior members of the banned terror outfit Jamaat-e-Islami.  The source said that the searches are underway in at least 40 locations. The source said that searches are being carried out in Doda, Budgam, Kishtwar, Ramban, Anantnag, Ganderbal, Shopian, Rajouri, and other districts of the union territory.

The source said that searches are being held at the premises of Gul Mohd War, a resident of Manigam Ganderbal, who is the district head of JEI; Abdul Hamid Bhat, a resident of Gamchipora Batweena; Zahoor Ahmad Reshi, JEI member and former teacher now running a shop at Safapora; and the premises of Mehrajdin Reshi in Safapora.

Reshi is a former terrorist and now runs a shop. In recent days, the NIA has carried out searches at different locations in two separate cases and also arrested a few people.
