J&K Police busts hawala network routing money from South Africa to aid terror activities

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir’s State Investigation Agency Saturday conducted raids in the Poonch district looking for terrorists suspected of funding terrorist activities, media reports said.

This comes after the recent arrest of two other people from Delhi and Poonch in connection with terror funding links.

Jammu and Kashmir’s State Investigation Agency in a joint action with their Delhi counterparts arrested Mohammad Yaseen from New Delhi’s Turkmen Gate area and Abdul Hameed Mir from Poonch, reported Indian Express.

According to police, Yaseen was an important link in routing hawala funds from South Africa to different parts of India to finance terror activities, said the report.

The money was collected by operatives in Surat and Mumbai with help from the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Al Badr militant outfits.

These revelations were made by Mir, who was arrested on Thursday when he reached the Jammu bus stand from Delhi. Mir is an alleged terror operative.

Mir got money from Yaseen, who is a garment trader at Delhi’s Meena Bazar, on Wednesday, according to the report.

He told police that the money was given to him by Yaseen for the purpose of funding terror activities in the border districts of Rajouri and Poonch of Jammu and Kashmir.

Police booked both Mir and Yassen under the UAPA.
