The National Investigation Agency carried out searches on seven locations of separatists in the Kashmir valley including Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yaseen Malik and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in connection with a terror funding case.
Several incriminating documents including letterheads of different terrorist organisations as well as high-end communication systems were recovered during the NIA raid.
"High tech internet communication set up was also recovered from the residence of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq," the premier probe agency for terror crimes said.
"Teams recovered incriminating documents including property papers, financial transactions receipts and bank account details. Significantly, letterheads of different terrorist organisations, as well as documents relating to recommendations for the visa for admission in Pakistan Educational Institutions, were found," the NIA statement added.
The premises belonged to top separatist leaders namely Yasin Malik, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Ashraf Khan, Masarat Alam, Zaffar Akbar Bhat, Naseem Geelani and Shabbir Shah," the NIA said.
During the searches, the teams also recovered electronic devices including laptops, e-tablets, mobile phones, pen drives, communication system and DVRs.
Meanwhile, in a massive development, the IAF struck at 6 JeM terror camps in multiple locations of Pakistan, killing over 245 terrorists in the region, only 12 days after the Pulwama terror attack on February 14 in which 40 CRPF jawans were martyred in a suicide bombing led by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad.
In the wee hours of Tuesday, 12 Mirage 2000 jets of the IAF crossed the LoC and bombed the terror camp of the JeM in Balakot and Muzaffarabad.
Futhermore, the Indian Army on Tuesday night gave Pakistan a befitting response for LoC-wide ceasefire violations, destroying five Pakistani posts and inflicting a number of casualties to the Pak Army. Five soldiers of the Indian Army were injured in the Pak firing, of which two have been evacuated to the Military Hospital.
