In a massive anti-terror exercise, the NIA today said it, along with CRPF and cops, had conducted raids at 16 locations in the Valley in connection with a fresh terror conspiracy case pertaining to violence perpetrated by proscribed organisations, such as LeT and JeM, and the activities of overground workers (OGWs).
