New Delhi/UNI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted raids at ten locations in Kashmir and one in Bengaluru, including the premises of Non Government Organisations (NGOs) and Trusts, in connection with a terror funding investigation.

The anti-terror probe agency said that the so-called NGOs and Trusts are raising funds in India and abroad in the name of charitable activities and then using those funds for carrying out secessionist and separatist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

The NIA team has searched the residence and office of J&K Coalition of Civil Society’s Co-ordinator Khurram Parvez, his associates Parvez Ahmad Bukhari, Parvez Ahmad Matta and Bengaluru-based associate Swati Sheshadri, Chairperson of Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDPK) Ms Parveena Ahanger and offices of NGO Athrout and GK Trust.

During the searches, several incriminating documents and electronic devices have been found and seized, the officials said.

This case was registered by the NIA on October 8 under sections 120B, 124 A IPC and sections 17, 18, 22A, 22C, 38, 39 and 40 UA(P)A, 1967, they added.
