The National Investigation Agency (NIA) carried out searches at multiple locations in Jammu and Kashmir to investigate financial links between former DSP Davinder Singh and Pakistan-based terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen. Places raided include premises of carpet businessman Sahil Jaroo.
The development comes almost a month after the NIA filed a charge sheet against six persons, including suspended DSP Davinder Singh, in a special NIA court in Jammu. The NIA has named Naveed Mushtaq alias Naveed Babu, Irfan Shafi Mir, Rafi Rather, Tanveer Ahmad Wani, and Syed Irfan in its charge sheet, besides Davinder Singh.
The suspended police officer is lodged in Kathua jail at Heeranagar in Jammu division. He was arrested by the police on January 11 on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway while transporting two HM terrorists — Naveed Babu and Rafi Ahmad Rather — and a law school dropout Irfan Shafi Mir to Jammu.
The NIA probe revealed that the accused were part of a deep-rooted conspiracy hatched by Hizbul and Pakistani state to commit violent acts and to wage war against India.
