New Delhi, Sep 6: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids at 11 locations in Srinagar and 5 locations in Delhi in connection with its ongoing probe into the terror funding case.

Those raided include alleged Hawala dealers in Delhi and businessmen involved in cross-border trade in Jammu and Kashmir.
