The purpose of these raids is to investigate the banned organization's financial sources. According to an NIA officer involved in the investigation, the agency's sleuths are conducting searches in several districts in collaboration with the CRPF. 

On July 10, the NIA arrested six people from Jammu and Kashmir in connection with a terror funding case.
