Srinagar/UNI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday conducted raids at multiple locations in Kashmir into the alleged Al-Qaeda linked terror module that was busted in Uttar Pradesh in July.

The case, according to NIA, pertains to Umar Halmandi, an Al-Qaeda operative, who along with other accused persons, had been radicalizing and recruiting vulnerable persons for AQIS (Al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent) and trying to raise Ansaar Gajwatul Hind (AGH) to carry out terrorist acts for which they had already arranged arms and explosive substances.

The case was initially registered on Jul 7, 2021 at police station ATS, Uttar Pradesh and NIA had re-registered the same on July 29

The NIA spokespersons said NIA on Thursday conducted searches at five locations in Shopian and Budgam Districts of Kashmir in connection with investigation of the case.

“During the searches conducted today, a large number of incriminating documents and digital devices have been seized,” the spokesperson said, adding further investigation in the case is continuing.

Meanwhile, the family of human rights activist advocate Parvaiz Imroz has denied that any raid was carried out at their residence by the NIA on Thursday.
