The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday, 7 April, carried out raids at 11 places in the Kashmir Valley in connection with a case related to the activities of 'The Resistance Front' (TRF) – a front outfit of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), officials said.

"The NIA conducted searches at 11 places today including 6 locations in district Srinagar, 2 in Baramulla, and one each in Awantipora (Pulwama), Budgam and Kulgam," an official said.

The locations searched include the house of active militant Basit Ahmad Dar against whom the NIA recently announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh.

The case relates to the activities of TRF, and its self-styled commander, Sajjad Gul, who has been actively radicalising, motivating, and recruiting the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.

Further investigation into the matter is underway.
