In a major crackdown against the circulation of black-money, a day before the anniversary of the demonetization policy, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on late Monday recovered demonetized notes worth Rs 36.34 crore – during its probe against terror-funding in Jammu and Kashmir.

Sources have confirmed that the NIA arrested nine people in connection with the probe. Allegedly the arrested were collecting scrapped notes of the denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1000 and were converting them into new notes with the help of bank officials.

According to the sources, a pan-India network is active across the country and was involved in collecting old notes, seeking to convert them into new ones.  Reportedly, the network also had connections with the separatists and terrorists in the valley.[/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][vc_column_text]The nine arrested during the latest crackdown, includes – Delhi-residents Pradeep Chauhan, Bhagwan Singh and Vinod Shreedhar Shetty, Mumbai-based Deepak Toprani, Ejajul Hassan of Amroha, Jaswinder Singh of Nagpur, and Jammu and Kashmir-residents Umar Mushtaq Dar of Pulwama, Shahnawaz Mir of Srinagar and Majid Yousuf Sofi of Anantnag. Sources claimed that the accused were planning to have a meeting near YMCA on Jai Singh Road of the valley.

NIA spokesperson, Inspector General Alok Mittal said that the NIA team arrested seven of the nine accused while they were carrying 28 cartons of old notes in four vehicles – BMW X3, Hyundai Creta SX, Ford EcoSport and BMW X1. The team arrested three other accused later in the day. An NIA official stated that the total worth of the seized notes is Rs 36,34,78,500.

The NIA raid came a day before the anniversary of the demonetization policy – which was implemented by the Narendra Modi government on November 8 last year. While many including opposition leaders still criticize the anti-graft policy over its hasty implementation – that triggered mass outcry among the common men – the leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lauded the Prime Minister’s decision, citing several crackdowns on black money – including the latest raid by NIA.

Earlier in September this year, the NIA has conducted raids at 11 locations in Srinagar of Jammu and Kashmir and five places in Delhi – at premises of traders who are allegedly linked with hawala operations and are using money to fund terror and separatist activities. The NIA move came a day after it arrested two people – including a freelance journalist – for their alleged role in stone pelting at the valley and for support against security forces through social networking sites. The accused, identified as Javed Ahmad Bhat and Kamran Yusuf of Kulgam and Pulwama districts of Jammu and Kashmir, were arrested in connection with an ongoing probe into terror funding.

The NIA had earlier made multiple arrests as a part of its investigation in the terror-funding case registered on May 30 – where Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) Chief and alleged Mumbai terror attack mastermind, Hafiz Saeed, is also an accused.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Rameshwaram Cafe blast: Karnataka Home Minister reveals how police inputs helped NIA arrest accused

The blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured

Published

Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara said on Saturday that inquiry teams were attempting to determine whether the two suspects in the Rameshwaram cafe blast who were detained by the NIA had any connections to other terrorist groups. He also praised the state police for their contributions, some of which resulted in their arrest. Meanwhile, the suspects have been placed in 10-day police custody on remand.

The Karnataka police and the NIA have both performed incredibly well. In the beginning, they obtained all of the CCTV footage and monitored one of the accused, which helped in their arrest, he said.

The minister disclosed how the NIA was able to arrest the accused, which was possible because of a tip from the police.

He said the police shared very good inputs with the NIA, like the cap the accused was wearing, which was purchased from Chennai, and the telephone number he had given in the shop.

According to G Parameshwara, the services were also looking for connections between them and other crimes related to terrorism. He said that they might be attempting to flee from West Bengal to Bangladesh, where they were apprehended by the NIA.

He said the team is investigating the real motive behind the blast and their involvement with other terror outfits (ISIS), as these two (accused) are supposed to be involved in the earlier Shivamogga blast and kept running for three to four days ahead of getting arrested in this case, Parameshwara stated.

Since they were apprehended in West Bengal, a state that shares a border with Bangladesh, it’s possible that they wanted to leave the country. However, currently, they don’t have any precise information on this. He continued, They will discover in due course if there is someone assisting from that side (Bangladesh).

Meanwhile, the blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured. On March 3, the NIA took over the case from the police and announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for any information regarding the two accused.
