A day after the National Investigation Agency(NIA) conducted raids in J&K and Delhi,  NIA sleuths today raided the residence of Hurriyat's Aga Hassan in Budgam district in J&K.

The NIA has been conducting raids in Jammu & Kashmir to track terror funding by separatists. 

On Wednesday, the NIA had conducted raids in at least eleven locations in Srinagar and five areas in Delhi including Gurugram.

The NIA had earlier questioned close aide of separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani for routing funds to separatists from their Pakistan-based handlers.

In July, seven separatist leaders including Nayeem Khan, Bitta Karate, Altaf Funtoosh and Shahid-ul-Islam were arrested by the NIA in terror funding case.

Altaf Funtoosh is the son-in-law of Hurriyat hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
