National Investigation Agency (NIA) sleuths on Monday conducted raids against banned Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) members in the Kashmir valley for the second day in connection with a terror funding case.
NIA officials, along with the police and the CRPF, carried out searches at five places in Bandipora district of Kashmir, a day after it carried out raids at 56 locations in all 10 districts.
The raids were conducted more than two years after the socio-political and religious group was banned by the Centre under anti-terror laws.
The NIA said a case was registered on February 5, 2021, in pursuance of an order from the Ministry of Home Affairs relating to separatist and secessionist activities of the JeI, an unlawful association under the UAPA Act, even after its proscription on February 28, 2019.
