Premises of the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons's chairperson, NGO Athrout and Greater Kashmir Trust were among 10 locations searched by the NIA today.

Omar’s father, Farooq Abdullah, was booked under the PSA in September last year.
Abdullah is among a host of leaders and activists detained on August 5 when the Modi government abrogated Article 370
