NIA raids at 3 locations in J&K, targets newly floated terror offshoots
A newly floated terrorist outfit in Jammu and Kashmir has been busted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), an official said. The NIA has also seized incriminating literature along with several digital devices in this connection.
The NIA conducted searches at three locations in Jammu and Kashmir belonging to hybrid terrorists and Over Ground Workers (OGWs) linked with the newly formed offshoots and affiliates of several proscribed Pakistan-backed terror outfits, such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), Al-Badr and Al-Qaeda.
The NIA official said, “The day-long raids and searches were conducted at locations in Srinagar and Budgam districts, as part of the ongoing NIA investigations into the activities of the recently formed terrorist groups, including The Resistance Front, United Liberation Front Jammu and Kashmir, Mujahideen Gazwat-ul-Hind, Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Fighters, Kashmir Tigers, and PAAF.”
The official said that a total of 51 locations were searched in recent days in connection with the terror conspiracy case which was registered Suo moto by the NIA on June 21, 2022.
The case relates to hatching a conspiracy, both physical and in cyberspace, and plans by the proscribed terrorist organizations to unleash violent terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir with sticky bombs, IEDs, small arms, etc.
The plans were part of a larger conspiracy to carry out acts of terror and violence by radicalizing local youth and mobilizing overground workers to disturb the peace and communal harmony of Jammu and Kashmir.
“Cadres and workers of the newly formed organizations have been found to be involved in the collection and distribution of sticky bombs/ magnetic bombs, IEDs, funds, narcotic substances, and arms/ ammunition, etc. They are spreading activities relating to terror, violence, and subversion in Jammu and Kashmir,” said the NIA.
The official said that their investigations have further revealed that Pakistan-based operatives are using drones to deliver arms/ ammunition, explosives, narcotics, etc., to their operatives and cadres in the Kashmir Valley.
These operatives are using social media to connect with the cadres and workers across India.
