SRINAGAR: The National Investigation Agency searched the office and house of Khurram Parvez, the self-styled chairman of the NGO J&K Coalition of Civil Society, here in Srinagar on Monday in connection with a terror funding investigation. Parvez’s family members claimed late Monday night that he had been arrested.
An NIA press statement said various entities were receiving money from undisclosed donors and that money was being used to fund terror activities.
Khurram Parvez, originally a resident of Amira Kadal, and a relative of his who is a lawyer, were running an NGO called J&K Coalition of Civil Society. Khurram, who now lives at Gupkar Road, on the rear side of Sonwar in Srinagar, had also hired several women to run his NGO.
Parvez was detained on September 16, 2016, but the J&K high court had quashed his detention on November 25, 2016, saying it was arbitrary and without justification.
An NIA team raided Khurram’s office at Amira Kadal Lal Chowk and his house at Sonwara, in the city. The agency had already seized the passports of Khurram and his female associates, who frequently travelled to several countries.
Official sources said Khurram Parvez’s name also appears in the chargesheet against activist Gautam Navlakha in the Elgar Parishad case.
