The agency had in July arrested seven pro-freedom leaders and a prominent local businessman in connection with the probe into the funding case.

SHO Budgam Rafi Ahmad told Kashmir Reader, "The NIA team left the residence of Agha Hassan around 7pm and reached Srinagar safely".

According to NIA sources, similar raids were going on at 12 places in the valley.

Sleuths of NIA started a raid at the residence of Hassan in Badgam district at 4 a.m.

On Wednesday NIA conducted several raids at the houses of businessmen in Srinagar and New Delhi.

With the arrest of two youth, the NIA has so far arrested 10 people, including spokespersons of both the factions of Hurriyat Conference, two sons and son-in-law of hardline HC chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani since last month after their questioning in Srinagar.

When asked whether the raids would continue, he said, "no comments".

Mittal said that during the NIA searches, "FDs (fixed deposits) worth over Rs 1 crore and a lot of incriminating material, suspect financial records, property-related documents and electronic devices were seized". "A posse of policemen raided Abi Guzar office of the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) in the heart of Srinagar and arrested Malik to desist him from spearheading the poll boycott campaign", a JKLF spokesman had said.

The separatist leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik had yesterday announced that they would stage a sit-in in front of NIA headquarters in New Delhi on September 9 and court arrest to protest "unjustifiable NIA raids and vilification of Kashmiri people by the investigation agency".

Litigators continued to suffer as lawyers across the valley abstained from work due to a strike called by High Court (HC) Bar Association, Kashmir, against National Investigation Agency's summon to its president advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom in connection with terror funding in the state.

Hardline senior separatist leader, Syed Ali Geelani continues to be under house arrest in his uptown Hyderpora residence.

Lawyers in the valley have made a decision to stay away from courts till Qayoom returned from Delhi. Meanwhile, ED is also probing money laundering by separatists/hawala traders/LoC traders while funding terror/stone pelting activities in the valley.

NIA investigated the whole matter as a case registered on May 30 in which the leader of the Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa and banned terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, Hafiz Saeed, was named as an accused.
