SRINAGAR: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday carried out searches at 11 locations in four districts of J&K and arrested four alleged overground workers (OGWs) in the terror conspiracy case. The agency had earlier arrested five accused in the case. Issuing a statement here, NIA said searches were conducted in Srinagar, Pulwama, Kulgam and Baramulla districts. The agency identified the four arrested accused as Suhail Ahmad Thokar, Kamran Ashraf Reshi, Rayid Bashir and Hanan Gulzar Dar. While Thokar is a resident of Kulgam, Reshi is a native of Hazratbal in Srinagar and Bashir and Dar belonged to other parts of Srinagar, the statement said. Preliminary investigation has revealed that the four accused arrested on Wednesday are associates of terrorists/OGWs of various terror organisations and that they had been providing logistical and material support to terrorists, the statement said. The case, it said, relates to a conspiracy for undertaking violent terror acts in J&K and other major cities by cadres of Laskhar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, Al Badr and similar other outfits. “NIA had registered the case on October 10 this year and initiated the investigation,” the statement said. The searches at the 11 locations also led to recovery and seizure of electronic devices and incriminating “jihadi documents/posters”, the agency said, adding that further investigation in the case is on.
