Of the total 44 locations being raided by the NIA since this morning, the agency sleuths have searched 1 place in Karnataka, 2 in Pune, 31 in Thane Rural, 9 in Thane city and 1 in Bhayandar, they informed.

NIA seized huge amount of unaccounted money, firearms, sharp edged weapons, incriminating documents, smart phones and other digital devices during the raids.
