The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has conducted raids at multiple locations in Baramulla-Uri and Srinagar in connection with a case relating to Naveed Baba, a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist. The case in question relates to cross border trade under the garb of which money was being raised for terror-related activities.
The case was registered on January 11, 2020, when Babu and Rafi Ahmed Rather were apprehended with now suspended DSP Devender Singh.
The probe revealed a deep-rooted conspiracy hatched by the Hizbul Mujahideen leadership in Pakistan and the ISI. An overground workers network was facilitating the supply of funds, arms and ammunition to the terror group in Jammu and Kashmir.
