National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids on numerous places in Kashmir on October 27 in the matter of suspected assistance and financing of terror operations by members of the now-banned Jamaat-e-Islami. NIA launched a significant operation on Jamat in Kashmir in August. In February 2019, the Ministry-of-Home Affairs banned Jamat for five years. Several leaders of Jamat, one of the biggest socio-political organizations, were detained shortly after it was banned.
