Business News/ News / India/  Terrorists kill circus performer in Jammu And Kashmir's Anantnag, probe initiated

A civilian from Udhampur succumbed to his injuries on Monday after terrorists opened fire at him in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag, said the police.

According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Deepu from Udhampur working at an amusement park near Janglaat Mandi in Anantnag.

The police said that the deceased succumbed to his injuries after he was taken to the hospital. 

"Terrorists fired upon one civilian namely Deepu R/O Udhampur working at private circus mela at amusement park near Janglaat Mandi in #Anantnag. He was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," the Kashmir Zone Police tweeted.

The police said a case has been registered and investigation is going on.

The incident comes days after the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday raided multiple locations in eight districts in Jammu and Kashmir as part of its efforts to dismantle terror support systems in the Union territory, an official said.

Extensive searches were conducted in Srinagar, Budgam, Pulwama, Shopian, Awantipora, Anantnag and Kupwara districts in Kashmir and Poonch district in Jammu division, a spokesperson of the federal agency said.

The official said the raids were conducted at more than a dozen places in connection with various cases related to members of the banned Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) and overground workers involved in conspiracies hatched by proscribed terrorist organisations and their affiliates.

The searches also focused on the terror funding case registered suo motu by the agency on February 5, 2021, the spokesperson said, adding a large number of incriminating documents and digital devices were seized during the searches and were being scrutinised to track further links of the suspects.

The terror funding case pertains to the collection of funds by JeI (J&K) ostensibly for charitable purposes but used instead for thepromotion of terror activities by proscribed terrorist organisations such as Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the official said.
