The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday conducted searches at 14 locations in different districts in a case related to terror activities of various proscribed outfits in Jammu and Kashmir, an official said.
The raids were conducted in Jammu, Kulgam (south Kashmir), Pulwama, Anantnag and Sopore in (north Kashmir's Baramulla), a spokesperson of the federal agency said.
The agency said the searches were carried out in connection with a case which was suo-moto registered on June 21 by the NIA Police Station in Jammu.
"The case pertains to the criminal conspiracy for carrying out terrorist and subversive activities hatched by the cadres and Over Ground Workers of various proscribed organizations and their affiliates/off-shoots, operating under various pseudo names, at the behest of their Pakistani commanders/handlers," the spokesperson said.
