PULWAMA – The sleuths of National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday carried out a raid at a seminary in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district in connection with the case involving suspended DySp Davinder Singh, who was arrested with two Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) militants last month.
The investigation agency today carried out a raid at Darul-Uloom in Pinglana area of Pulwama district and confiscated some documents, a local newsgathering agency KNT reported.
Today’s raid comes a week after NIA arrested former president of the LoC Traders Association Tanveer Ahmed Wani, a resident of Pulwama.
He was the sixth person to be arrested in this case.
Earlier this month, NIA raided several locations for two days, on February 2 and 3, in south and north Kashmir, including the residence of Davinder Singh.
A 20-member NIA team had come on February 1 to Kashmir to collect more evidence against Singh whose arrest shook the security agencies in J&K and Centre. Singh is currently being questioned in Jammu by the NIA officials after getting his transit remand.
The DySP was arrested by J&K police on the 280-km-long National Highway while transporting three people, including two HM commanders Naveed Babu and Rafi Ahmed, to Jammu on January 11.
Multiple raids were conducted by J&K police at his residences in the valley after his arrest. But, after initial investigations by the J&K police, the case was handed over to the NIA.
Singh was an office in Anti-hijacking wing of J&K police at Srinagar International Airport, and was part of the security staff that received a group of foreign ambassadors, including US ambassador, who visited Kashmir last month.
