Lucknow: The UP Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) on Sunday arrested 10 persons from multiple locations in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh on allegations of terror funding.

IG (Anti-Terror Squad) Aseem Arun said that the suspects had been arrested for their alleged assistance in providing funding to terror outfits across India. The arrests were made in synchronized raids in Gorakhpur, Kushinagar, Padrauna, Pratapgarh and Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh and Rewa in Madhya Pradesh.

The ATS has recovered a large amount of cash, bank statements and ATMs cards during the raids which were mainly carried out on mobile dealers .

The terror funding case, registered by the National Investigating Agency (NIA) in April 2011, relates to the transfer of money from Pakistan to Jammu and Kashmir through hawala channels via Delhi, which was used in funding terror and secessionist activities.

The NIA has so far filed two chargesheets against six persons, including G. M Bhat, a close aide of pro-Pakistan separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mohammed Siddiq Ganai, Ghulam Jeelani Liloo, and Farooq Ahmed Dagga.

All four are in judicial custody.

Two others — Mohammed Maqbool Pandit and Bhat — were also charge-sheeted by the NIA but are absconding. An Interpol Red Corner notice has been issued against them.
