In a decisive move, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) carried out extensive raids across multiple locations in Jammu & and Kashmir on Tuesday, targeting a terror conspiracy orchestrated by offshoots of banned Pakistan-backed terrorist organizations. The focused entities include notorious groups such as Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), Al-Badr, and Al-Qaeda, among others.
NIA teams simultaneously descended upon eight locations spread across seven districts: Poonch, Shopian, Pulwama, Baramulla, Ganderbal, Kupwara, and Srinagar in the Union Territory of Jammu & and Kashmir. The locations in question were identified as the residential premises of individuals involved in hybrid terrorism and Overground Workers (OGWs) associated with the recently-formed affiliates and offshoots of the banned terrorist outfits.
During the meticulously executed operations, NIA officials seized a trove of digital devices and incriminating data, shedding light on the complexity and scale of the alleged terror conspiracy. The evidence collected is expected to play a crucial role in ongoing investigations and future legal proceedings.
This latest crackdown underscores the government’s unwavering commitment to national security and the ongoing efforts to dismantle the networks supporting banned terrorist organizations. Authorities remain vigilant in their pursuit of thwarting potential acts of terrorism and ensuring the safety and security of the region.
The NIA’s swift and targeted actions reflect a proactive approach to neutralizing threats posed by terrorist activities, reaffirming the resolve to safeguard the nation against any form of terrorism.
