NIA launches raids in Poonch district in cross-LoC trade case

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) carried out raids in nine places in the Poonch district of J&K on Sunday in connection with a case related to the cross Line of Control (LoC) trade registered in 2016.  

The NIA said that searches were carried out at premises of suspected LoC traders and documents, digital devices, and other incriminating materials were retrieved from them. The agency has registered a case under section 17 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act concerning the raising of illegal funds. 

The NIA said that the case is related to the large-scale transfer of illegal funds from Pakistan to India through the import of California almonds and other items via the cross-LoC trade facilitation centres located at Salamabad in Uri area of Baramulla district in northern Kashmir and Chakkan-Da-Bag area of Poonch district. 

“These funds were purportedly being used for fomenting terrorism/separatism in J&K. Some of the traders having excess imports were channelising the surplus profit generated to terror organisations while others are suspected to have links and connections with the proscribed terrorist organisation,” an official statement stated.
