Home Ministry had suspended the trade citing ‘funnelling of illegal weapons, narcotics and fake currency’


Sleuths of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on July 23 raided the Parimpora Fruit Mandi in Srinagar and the house of a cross-Line of Control (LoC) trader in south Kashmir’s Pulwama.
A team searched the house of trader Ghulam Ahmad Wani alias Bardana at Achgoza Keller, Pulwama, in the morning, police sources said. Another NIA team searched the main wholesale fruit market in the city. 
The Ministry of Home Affairs on April 18 this year suspended cross-LoC trade, citing “funnelling of illegal weapons, narcotics and fake currency” as reasons.
The NIA investigation suggested that a significant number of trading firms were being operated by persons who were “closely associated with banned terrorist organisations”.
