The National Investigation Agency on Thursday raided 9 locations in the Valley and one in Delhi in connection with a case related to NGOs and trusts diverting funds meant for charitable activities to 'secessionist and separatist activities' in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

 

Several incriminating documents and electronic devices were seized, the NIA said in a statement.

Those whose premises were searched include Falah-e-Aam Trust, Charity Alliance in Delhi, Human Welfare foundation, J-K Yateem Foundation, Salvation Movement and JK Voice of Victims.

The case was registered on October 8 under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act on receiving 'credible information that certain NGOs and Trusts are collecting funds domestically and abroad through so-called donations and business contributions' and then using them to fund terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir, they said.
