The National Investigation Agency, or NIA, on Tuesday carried out searches on separatists in the Kashmir valley, including Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, in a terror funding case, officials said.
The NIA officials, accompanied by local police and CRPF personnel, carried out searches at nearly nine places across the Kashmir valley, which included the house of Nayeem Geelani, son of pro-Pakistan separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, they said.
Besides these, the houses of other separatists Yasin Malik, Shabir Shah, Ashraf Sehrai and Zaffar Bhat were also raided.
The case relates to funds allegedly received by the separatist from Pakistan through hawala channels, the officials added.
