New Delhi, November 22

The anti-terror federal probe agency NIA on Monday carried out raids at multiple locations in Srinagar city in connection with the Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) terror-funding case and arrested prominent human rights activist Khurram Parvez.

Officials in the NIA said the agency sleuths carried out searches at the residence of Parvez at Sonwar area and office at Amira Kadal before taking him along for questioning to their office at Church Lane in Dalgate in Srinagar.

The officials said the Parvez’s family has been handed over the arrest memo and would be taken to New Delhi tomorrow after receiving a transit remand by local special court.

In October 2020, NIA conducted raids at several locations in the valley, including Parvez’s residence and office.

Parvez is the chairperson of the Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD) and the programme coordinator of JKCCS. He had lost his leg in a landmine blast while monitoring the 2004 Parliamentary elections.

Meanwhile, the officials confirmed that besides Parvez’s office and residence premises, the NIA sleuths also raided a few other places in Srinagar and during search operation they were assisted by the personnel of J&K police and the CRPF.
