J&K Terror Funding: No Evidence, NIA Set To Close One Of Two Probes

Last August, following street protests that rocked the Valley after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, the NIA initiated a preliminary enquiry to probe funds stoking unrest in the Valley. It was suspected that these funds were coming from across the border and were being channelised to stone-pelters through suspect bank accounts linked to militants or separatists in the Valley. A year down the line, the agency has found that all transactions through these bank accounts were legitimate and not connected in any way to terror funding.
