The State Investigation Agency (SIA), which is probing the terror funding case, conducted simultaneous raids in several areas of district Poonch today.

The day after Hameed’s arrest, the Delhi Police arrested Mohammad Yasin, a textile trader there.
Let us tell you that on Wednesday, on the basis of information received from reliable sources, Jammu Police arrested a resident of Poonch at Jammu Bus Stand with a hawala amount of Rs 10 lakh.
Abdul Hameed, who was going to Poonch with hawala money from Delhi, was entrusted with the task of transporting this amount to the terrorist organizations in Poonch so that terrorist attacks could be accelerated.
On the basis of his interrogation, the SOG sent information to the Delhi Police and took the Delhi cloth merchant into custody.
A hawala amount of about Rs 24 lakh was recovered from the possession of both of them.
Based on the interrogation of Abdul Hameed Mir, the State Investigation Agency along with police and other security forces conducted raids at several places in Poonch.
Sources said that this amount sent through hawala was to be given to Lashkar-e-Taiba and Al-Badar so that they can increase terror attacks in Poonch and Rajouri districts.

It is feared that with the arrest of more people related to hawala, the hope of recovery of many important documents is being expressed.
Yasin, a resident of Turkman Gate in Delhi, revealed during interrogation that the hawala money was being sent to India via South Africa, a police official said.
All this money was collected in Surat and Mumbai.
Police said that Yasin used to do clothing business in Meena Bazar and he was a Delhi link to send money to terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
