    The NIA learnt about the same during the probe into the murder of an RSS worker Ravinder Gosain in Punjab. Once the accused persons gave the green signal, the money was transferred by the ISI through a hawala channel and also the Western Union from accounts in the UK, Italy, France, Pakistan and UAE.
