PFI Terrorists’ Assets – Govt of Kerala in Confiscation Spree

Spread the love

Kochi (VSK). Revenue Department of Government of Kerala (GoK) is in a confiscation spree in the wake of the ultimatum Kerala High Court issued on January 19. Ultimatum wanted GoK to finish the confiscation of the assets, belonging to outlawed PFI and/or its leaders, on or before January 23, 2023. Confiscation of assets is for the compensation worth Rs 5.20 crores for damages and public property destruction caused by the violent ‘flash hartal’ held (by PFI) on September 23, 2022. There was every reason to believe that GoK was soft pedaling in the matter. Once they went to the extent of saying that the confiscation would take six months! But, the High Court ultimatum of January 19 turned a bomb shell for GoK. There is no room for further delaying tactics. Because, it could invite ‘contempt of court’.

Now, the GoK actions have been kicked off. Authorities have confiscated the land and house, of PFI state general secretary Abdul Sathar, in Puthiyakavu, (Karunagappalli), Kollam district and several others. Assets of 197 PFI workers throughout state are in the process of confiscation. The district wise details are as follows –
