NIA attaches property of Hizbul terrorist in J&K’s Sopore town

National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday attached the property of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist, Basit Reshi in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore town.
The NIA action against Basit Reshi comes a day after the agency attached the property of Al-Umar terror group founder, Mushtaq Ahmad Zargar in Srinagar city.
The Ministry of Home Affairs recently declared Basit Reshi, presently in Pakistan, as a ‘designated terrorist’ under the unlawful activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for his involvement in ‘subversive activities and for coordinating target killings’. NIA attached the property of Basit Reshi in Dangerpora area of Sopore town.
The agency claims that Reshi planned and executed an attack on a police guard post at Tujar Sherief near Sopore on August 18, 2015 in which one police personnel and a civilian were killed.
NIA attaches assets worth over Rs 20 cr in Jharkhand: Striking a blow to a funding source of left-wing extremism, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has attached 152 bank accounts and special term deposit receipts and a mutual fund account containing more than Rs 20 crore belonging to a firm and its different partners.
This is the largest-ever amount attached by the federal agency in cases pertaining to the left-wing extremism, an official of the agency said. A total of 152 bank accounts, including 124 special term deposit receipts, and one SBI Mutual Fund account containing more than Rs 20.65 crore belonging to M/s Santosh Construction and its different partners were attached under the UAPA, a spokesperson of NIA said.
The official said these accounts had earlier been frozen under the provisions of the CrPC but have been found to be “proceeds of terrorism” during investigations warranting their “attachment” under the UAPA.
