Srinagar, July 30 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has raided two Srinagar-based firms for allegedly exporting Shahtoosh shawls.
The Indian CBI has claimed to have registered two separate cases against two Kashmiri private firms and others on the allegations of illegal export of shawls.
