India Enforcement Directorate seizes properties of Hizb terrorists

Enforcement Directorate seizes properties of Hizb terrorists

The Enforcement Directorate invoked the money laundering act to confiscate the six properties after seizing 13 assets of terrorists in March

The Enforcement Directorate has seized six properties of terrorists in a major action against the militancy in Jammu and Kashmir. The investigating agency said on Thursday that it has taken possession of six properties belonging to the terrorists in the terror funding case against Syed Salahuddin, the head of the Pakistani terrorist and globally banned outfit Hizb ul Mujahideen.

This follows the Enforcement Directorate taking possession of seven properties on Monday in connection with a terror-funding case against Hizb ul Mujahideen chief Salahuddin and others.

The Enforcement Directorate had seized 13 such properties under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in March this year. The Enforcement Directorate said that these properties were located in three districts Anantnag, Bandipora and Baramulla.

These properties belong to Hizb ul Mujahideen militants Mohammad Shafi Shah, Talib Lali, Ghazi Nabi Khan, Zafar Hussain Bhat, Abdul Majeed Sofi, Nazir, Ahmed Dar and Manzoor Ahmed Dar. The Enforcement Directorate said that the total value of the 13 properties is Rs 1.22 crore and that the people who owned these properties were terrorists of Hizb ul Mujahideen. Officials said that the remaining assets too will be taken over soon.

“Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, the most active terror outfit in Kashmir, has been responsible for funding terrorist and secessionist activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Headed by Syed Salahuddin, its self-styled commander based out of Rawalpindi in Pakistan, it funds terrorism on Indian soil through money organised by a trust called JKART (Jammu and Kashmir Affectees Relief Trust) in alleged connivance with the ISI and other Pakistan-based entities,” the Enforcement Directorate had said.

The federal investigation agency had registered a criminal case of money laundering against Salauddin, Shah and others in this case after taking cognizance of the charge sheet of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) filed under the relevant sections of UAPA and IPC. After this, the action of confiscation of property was initiated.

Agencies say the HuM had been raising money through the Jammu & Kashmir Affectees Relief Trust, in conspiracy with Pakistan-based entities, to fund terror activities in the Valley. The ED alleges that the funds were sent to India through the ‘hawala’ channel, barter trade and human carriers and also distributed among the kin of terrorists, dead or alive.
