Continuing its investigations in a terror funding case, men of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday raided the premises of two traders involved in cross Line of Control (LoC) trade. The raids were carried out in Pulwama and Srinagar districts.

Police sources said NIA officers, assisted by Jammu and Kashmir police and CRPF, carried out a raid at the house of Ghulam Ahmad Wani in Keller area of Pulwama district. Sources said Wani was involved in cross LoC trade before its suspension by the authorities on 14 February.

Another raid was carried out at the Parimpora fruit Market in Srinagar.

The raids are part of the ongoing NIA investigation against suspected terror funding.

A prominent Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Watali and several separatist leaders have already been arrested by NIA so far. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is separately investigating cases of the flow of funds from Pakistan and other external sources for terror funding in Kashmir.
