Urgent Update Regarding the NIA Raids on HRDs in Kashmir:

This morning the National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted a raid on Praveena Ahanger's house, and subsequently on the office of Association of Disappeared Persons (APDP) in Hyderpora in Srinagar.
This seems to be a premeditated and planned assault. Last week, the local CID and IB officials called up Parveena Ahanger a few times and demanded information regarding the staff and the organisation. All details were duly provided to them.
Earlier, we had received the news that Khurram Parvez’s home was being raided by the NIA, along with six other places including residences of senior journalists, office of newspaper Greater Kashmir and other NGOs engaged in healthcare and social service.
