In a bid to choke funding for militants and their sympathisers, the Centre is pushing for better coordination between various state and central intelligence agencies and the Enforcement Directorate.
The Union Home Ministry has ordered information sharing between Enforcement Directorate’s Srinagar Office and head office in Delhi on certain high-profile cases.
The decision has been taken after reports that militants and some related institutions are receiving money through hawala operators and in the past two years not a single case has been registered under Prevention of Money Laundering Act in Kashmir “despite transactions are going on”.
