In a bid to dismantle the terror-attempt made by the neighbouring country Pakistan after it had dropped over a bulk of arms and ammunitions with the help of drones in India’s northern state of Jammu & Kashmir, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids on Thursday, August 18, 2022 at multiple locations along the border.
The raids were conducted in Jammu, Srinagar, Kathua, Samba and Doda districts over drone-dropping consignments of arms, ammunitions and explosives by a unit interlinked with TRF (The Resistance Front), which is a branch of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
The officials were seen at the premises of Faisal Muneer, considered as the main accused in the Arnia weapon drop case. He too disclosed a couple of locations during the interrogation. Several arrests were made last month in the drone-dropping case.
While informing the local media, one of the NIA officials stated, “The searches conducted today have led to recovery of various incriminating material, digital devices and documents.”
“These weapon consignments were being further supplied to TRF terrorists in Kashmir for execution of terrorist attacks on minorities, migrants and security forces,” an official said.
The case was initially registered at Kathua’s Rajbagh police station earlier this May, but was re-registered again on July 30, 2022 by the National Investigation Agency.
The other details are yet to be received.
