National Investigation Agency (NIA) had undertaken raids at the ten various locations in the state of Jammu & Kashmir and in the city of Bengaluru and just one day later it again conducted another six raids in the state of Jammu & Kashmir as well as in the country capital of Delhi on this Thursday.


The raids were undertaken with regard to an alleged case relating to a couple of NGOs as well as Trusts garnering funds in connection to India and also abroad with the excuse of undertaking charitable activities but then making use of those funds for conducting secessionist as well as separatist activities in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.


"In continuation of yesterday's search operations, NIA conducted searches at 7 locations in Srinagar, Baramulla, Anantnag & Kulgam (J&K) and 2 locations in Delhi in connection with the case pertaining to certain NGOs and Trusts raising funds in the name of charitable activities and then using those funds for carrying out secessionist and separatist activities in J&K," the agency revealed through a statement.


"The premises of the following NGOs/Trusts/Foundation were searched: JK Yateem Foundation at Srinagar and Kulgam; The Salvation Movement at Srinagar, run by Zafar Akbar Bhat; Human Welfare Foundation at Delhi and Anantnag; Jammu and Kashmir Voice of Victims at Baramulla, run by Abdul Qadeer; Falah-e- Aam Trust at Budgam, run by GM Bhat; Charity Alliance, at Delhi, run by Zafar ul Islam. Several incriminating documents and electronic devices have been seized during searches," the statement further added.


Yesterday NIA officials raided the office and home of Khurram Parvez (Coordinator of the Jammu & Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society) and that of his associates like Parvez Ahmad Bukhari, Swati Sheshadri and Parvez Ahmad Matta. Also, the home and office of Parveena Ahanger (chairperson of Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons) was raided. Furthermore, Greater Kailash Trust and NGO Athrout were raided.


Mehbooba Mufti, the People's Democratic Party chief opined that the raids by the NIA are but a "vicious crackdown on dissent".

 "NIA raids on human rights activist Khurram Parvez & Greater Kashmir office in Srinagar is yet another example of GOIs vicious crackdown on freedom of expression & dissent. Sadly, NIA has become BJPs pet agency to intimidate & browbeat those who refuse to fall in line," tweeted MS Mufti on this Wednesday.


 The NIA’s statement moved the charges that these so-called NGOs have been receiving funds from the undisclosed donors, which was being made use of at that time to fund the various terror activities.
