Jammu. In a major crackdown on terror funding, State Investigation Agency (SIA) and executive wing of J&K Police attached 124 properties, land and buildings, in 86 locations across the UT on Wednesday, in accordance with Government’s zero tolerance policy for anti-national activities and terror funding.
During the course of investigation, it has been established that these properties were either proceeds of terrorism or were used in such activities which are aimed at the furtherance of terrorism and secessionism.
An official from the executive wing of the J&K Police said, “Invoking provisions of Section 8 and Section 25 of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), the team of SIA have set into motion legal process for forfeiture of these tainted properties.”
As many as 77 numbers of these properties belong to proscribed organisation Jamat-e-Islami, have been notified under Section 08 of UAPA in a case registered in the year 2019 at Batamaloo Police Station. The case is being investigated by the SIA.
Exhibiting strong resolve against terrorism, the action has been taken following due process of law, to deracinate the terror support system, as per requirements of international charters and conventions against terrorism.
