NEW DELHI: National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is probing a terror-funding module of Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) that allegedly financed the construction of a mosque at Uttawar village in Palwal, Haryana, is also looking at the possibility of a larger network of similar persons/modules spread across the country through which FIF may be channeling terror funds into India.

NIA is examining if other Indians visiting or working in Dubai or UAE were in touch with Pakistani nationals there who may be acting as conduits for FIF terror funds being pumped into India for allegedly carrying out terrorist activities.

Mohammad Salman, a key accused arrested by NIA in the case and originally from Uttawar, had come in contact with one Kamran, a Pakistani businessman, during his two visits to Dubai. Kamran in turn was in touch with the deputy chief of FIF, a proscribed affiliate of Lashker-e-Taiba , and was acting as a conduit for sending terror funds via hawala route to India. Apart from Salman, NIA arrested two hawala couriers in Delhi on September 25 - Mohd Salim, resident of Daryaganj and Sajjad Abdul Wani, resident of Srinagar.

Salman told his interrogators that he had used FIF funds received through hawala for construction of a mosque in Uttawar. The NIA later conducted searches at the local mosque and recovered documents confirming that nearly Rs 70 lakh of the Rs 2-21/2 crore used to construct the mosque were FIF funds received through hawala route.
