Terrorist groups kept many leaders of the Hurriyat under a tight leash. While investigations have shown that many Hurriyat leaders received funds from Pakistan, they were also under pressure from terror groups to ensure that the money reached them.
Documents unearthed by the NIA have shown that there were several exchanges of letters between the Hizbul Mujahideen and the Hurriyat leaders when it came to raising funds. Letter heads of the Lashkar-Tayiba were also found during the raids conducted in June.
The Hurriyat leaders who were the custodians of the cash were repeatedly told to pass on the money to the terrorist groups. While the letters would begin with pleasantries and a request, it would always end with a warning at the end if the money was not given.
In all the NIA has unearthed at least 2.5 crore during the raids. The NIA is now probing a Dubai route which was used to move the funds. Several investigations in the past have revealed that Kashmiri businessmen in Dubai were sending in funds to the Valley.
An NIA officer said that they would re-visit those cases as well. The officer also said that the questioning of Syed Ali Shah Geelani's son Naeem would be crucial for the investigation. In addition to this, the NIA has also summoned 30 more suspects for questioning.
