New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday continued searches in an alleged terror funding case at nine locations in Jammu and Kashmir and Delhi. The agency also raided the properties related to former Delhi Minority Commission chief Zafarul Islam Khan.

The raids were being held in connection with a case pertaining to some NGOs and Trusts accused of raising funds in India and abroad in the name of charitable activities, and then using those funds allegedly for carrying out secessionist and separatist activities in the union territory.

An NIA official privy to the investigation told IANS, the agency was carrying out searches at nine locations on the premises of six NGOs and Trusts in Srinagar and Delhi.

Offices of Falah-e-Aam Trust, Charity Alliance, Human Welfare Foundation, J&K Yateem Foundation, Salvation Movement and J&K Voice of Victims (JKVoV) were being raided by the anti-terror probe agency sleuths.
