Srinagar: CRPF Director General R R Bhatnagar today said the investigation and raids being conducted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) into terror funding 'led to a decline in stone pelting in Kashmir Valley.' 'There is an effect following the actions by all the agencies. There is also an effect because of what NIA is doing. The way stone pelting was happening in a coordinated manner, this (NIA raids) will definitely stop that,' Bhatnagar told reporters. He was asked whether stone pelting had reduced in the valley in the aftermath of the NIA investigation into terror funding. The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) chief visited the District Police Lines in Pulwama in south Kashmir which was stormed by three militants on August 26.
