Srinagar: As Kashmir continues to remain tense, it has been learnt that the separatists are receiving funds through the 'hawala' route.
Reports say that the separatists are getting Rs 50-60 lakhs every month, which is being used to fuel the protests in the Valley.
Terror outfit Hizbul Mujahidden is helping the separatists in receiving the money.
Earlier, a report published in OneIndia had said several lakhs of rupees are smuggled in Jammu and Kashmir in gas cylinders. Money is stitched to salwar kameez donned by women to deflect the attention.
Kashmir has been witnessing unending violence ever since terror outfit Hizbul Mujahidden's poster boy Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter on July 09.
There are several terrorist training camps in PoK of various outfits like Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammad which are used for training and subsequently for infiltrating trained militants into Jammu and Kashmir.
The separatists on Friday issued their fresh weekly protest calendar which is harsher than the ones they had been issuing during the previous weeks of the unrest.
While calling for daily protests and rallies during the next seven days, the separatists said there would be no relaxation in the protest shut down during this period.
In their previous weekly protest calendars, separatists had been allowing opening of markets and passage of people from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
All educational institutions, main markets, public transports and other businesses have remained closed in Kashmir Valley for the past 70 days.
