The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday conducted raids at several locations across the Kashmir Valley in a case related to militant conspiracy.

According to a statement, the raids were conducted in Anantnag, Srinagar, Pulwama, Shopian and Budgam districts, during which incriminating material and documents were also seized.

The statement reads that the raids were conducted in the premises’ of sympathizers, hybrid militants and OGWs linked with the newly-formed offshoots and affiliates of several proscribed Pak-backed militant organisations, including Laskhar-e-Toiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), Al-Badr, Al-Qaeda, etc.

“The raids were part of the ongoing investigations of NIA in the militant conspiracy case, involving the activities of OGWs and cadres in support of various newly-launched outfits, such as The Resistance Front (TRF), United Liberation Front Jammu & Kashmir (ULFJ&K), Mujahideen Gazwat-ul-Hind (MGH), Jammu & Kashmir Freedom Fighters (JKFF), Kashmir Tigers, PAAF, among others.”

It added that besides militant and violent activities, these cadres and workers had been found involved in collection and distribution of sticky, magnetic bombs, IEDs, funds, narcotics and arms and ammunition.

“NIA investigations had further revealed that Pak-based operatives were involved in delivery of arms and ammunition, explosives, narcotics etc to these cadres and workers in the Kashmir valley via drones. Social media platforms were also being widely used by the operatives across the border to connect with OGWs and cadres in Kashmir.”

The statement reads that NIA had registered the case (RC-05/2022/NIA/JMU) suo motu on 21st June 2022.

“The matter related to conspiracy and plans, hatched physically as well in cyberspace, by these proscribed militant organisations. The conspirators aimed to unleash violent militant attacks in J-K with sticky bombs, IEDs and small arms etc, as part of a larger conspiracy to commit acts of militant and violence by radicalising local youth and mobilising and deploying overground workers.”

It added in connection with the investigation of this case, since the beginning of this month, NIA has conducted more than 70 searches in Jammu and Kashmir. (KNO)
