The National Investigation Agency (NIA) Saturday raided 23 locations in Kashmir, Haryana and New Delhi in connection with a case of alleged funding received for carrying out subversive activities in the Valley, reports said.

After registering an FIR earlier this week, various NIA teams, which had been camping in the Valley for few days, moved under heavy escort from their camp office located at Humhama, on the outskirts of the Srinagar city, reports added.

Among those raided by the NIA were Altaf Fantoosh, the son-in-law of octogenarian pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Geelani, businessman Zahoor Watali, Shahid-ul-Islam, leader of Awami Action Committee led by Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, and some second rung pro-freedom leaders belonging to both factions of the Hurriyat Conference and the JKLF, the reports added.

The agency seized nearly Rs 1.5 crore from various locations in the Kashmir Valley, besides documents which were being scrutinised, officials said.
