New Delhi, Aug 17: The National Investigation Agency and the Intelligence Bureau will probe the inflow of nearly Rs 30 crore into Jammu and Kashmir which was used to fuel the unrest since July 9 2016.
Following an intelligence bureau report regarding the inflow of money into the Valley, a probe has been initiated based on the directive given by the Ministry for Home Affairs.
According to the report of the intelligence bureau, the money came in to fuel the unrest. The money has been spent on paying the stone pelters, organising meetings and also supporting infiltration bids. The probe by the NIA will help track the source of the funds and also reveal who had received the money in the Valley.
Funding the unrest
Sources tell OneIndia that it is the constant flow of money which has kept the unrest alive. Stone pelters are paid by separatists amounts ranging from Rs 300 to Rs 800 per day. Further several secret meetings have been organised in the Valley to plan the violence. The money has been used to conduct such meetings as well, officials say.
There has also been a large number of infiltrations that have taken place in the past month taking advantage of the violence. Groups such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba have appointed guides along the border to help oversee the infiltrations.
These guides too have been paid a large sum of money, officials also reveal.
Further the IB report also suggests that large sums of money had also been paid off to protestors who were told to target police posts and government buildings. In the past month, the protestors have burnt down buses too. Such a huge sum of money which has been pumped in was done with the specific cause to keep the unrest alive.
Waiting to infiltrate
Another intelligence bureau report has warned of increased infiltrations in the days to come. Terrorists belonging to the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad numbering around 70 have been kept on standby.
The IB report says that these people are waiting to infiltrate in batches or as buddy pairs.
The report also states the terrorists are armed with sophisticated weapons. The recent arrest of Pakistan terrorist Bahadur Ali revealed the plans of the terrorists groups in infiltrating into the Valley. He also spoke of advance technology being used in infiltrations.
