Four residential properties and three vehicles were confiscated in Jammu & Kashmir for aiding terrorist operations, according to the police.

Police has put in place various punitive measures under PHQ orders over four houses that were used in carrying out terrorist activities. Additionally, sanctions were also given for the confiscation of three cars, including a two-wheeler which was utilised for illegal activities.

Security agencies found through their investigations that three private homes were utilised by three terrorists in an assault on CRPF personnel. They were on duty with a Road Opening Party (ROP) near the Lawypora National Highway in Srinagar.

Four members of the CRPF were wounded in the aforementioned terror attack, and two of them later died as a result of their wounds. It was also discovered throughout the inquiry that the defendants frequently gave terrorists sanctuary and logistical support in their homes so they could carry out terrorist attacks.

Mohd Yousuf Sofi, Khursheed Ahmad, and Rameez Ahmad Mir have been named as the accused of violating sections 120-B, 302, 307, 392, 7/27, 7/27 A Act 16, 18, and 20, and UAPA.

It was discovered that Ab Rehman Bhat’s home was being utilised for terrorist activities since his son Ashiq Hussain Bhat was reportedly housing terrorists inside.

Considering facts, circumstances, and evidence gathered during the investigation, the immovable property, a residential dwelling, constituted “Proceeds of Terrorism,” according to authorities. A four-wheeler, a three-wheeler, and a two-wheeler were also utilised for terrorist motives.

According to an official statement, DGP J&K has given approval for attachment/seizure of the immovable/movable properties in these cases in exercise of powers provided by section 25 of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The statement went on to note that during the year 2021, PHQ has provided approval for the seizure of 75 cars, (which comprise largely four-wheelers and two-wheelers), 5 residences, 6 stores, land, and cash under UAPA.
