Home / News / India /  NIA raids suspended J&K cop Davinder Singh’s Srinagar residence

The National Investigation Agency on Wednesday conducted searches at suspended Jammu & Kashmir police office Davinder Singh’s Indira Nagar house in Srinagar.

The NIA is yet to make an official statement regarding the recoveries from the fresh searches.

Preliminary investigations and searches led authorities to recover cash worth 7.5 lakhs and sensitive documents and maps.

The suspended deputy superintendent of police was caught in Kulgam with Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists earlier this month, while he was allegedly helping them travel out of the Valley.

Intelligence agencies are probing his involvement in the 2001 Parliament attack. In 2013, Afzal Guru, who was executed for the attack, had claimed in a letter that Singh had sought his assistance to move militants out of the Valley, an official aware of the developments said. The matter, however, was decided in Singh’s favour at that time.

NIA is also probing Singh’s involvement with Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Taiba, and other operational and active terrorists groups.
