New Delhi, November 25: Tracking down the investigation in a terrorism conspiracy case, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday carried out multiple searches in Jammu and Kashmir. The investigation agency did not reveal the exact case under which they conducted raids citing investigation reasons but they assured to share the inputs soon as and when it finds a suitable time that will not affect its probe.
The raids were conducted after NIA arrested Kashmiri human rights activist Khurram Parvez from Kashmir. He was involved in anti-India activities and had direct links with banned Pakistan-based terrorist organizations. A senior NIA official confirmed the news stating that Parvez was in touch with Over Ground Workers (OWGs) of a banned Pakistan organization. However, he did not disclose the name of the banned Pakistani outfit suspecting that the revelation may impact the ongoing investigation.
NIA stated that the Kashmiri human rights activist was held on the basis of ‘solid evidence’ against him proving his links with the OWGs for several years. The evidence was in the form of electronic devices and some other platforms that can be proved before the court during proceedings.
The officials also mentioned that the case in which Parvez was arrested had links to Himachal Pradesh where raids were conducted on Monday besides these two locations in Kashmir. However, Parvez was arrested from Jammu and Kashmir in connection to the terror funding case. He has been booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
