Enforcement Directorate (ED) seized 13 properties located in Jammu and Kashmir that belonged to Syed Salahuddin, who was hiding in Pakistan on Tuesday. Salahuddin is the worldwide head of the banned terrorist organization Hizbul Mujahideen.
The ED ordered to temporarily seize these properties worth 1.22 crore rupees under the Money Laundering Act. It is named after Mohd Shafi Shah of Bandipora and six other people of the state. All of them are accused of working for Hizbul. According to the Enforcement Directorate, an appropriate case of violation of the Money Laundering Act was found on the charge sheet filed under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (UAPA) filed against Salahuddin, Shah and others.
According to a statement issued by the funding agency of the terrorists, Hizbul Mujahideen is the most active terrorist organization in Jammu and Kashmir and funding terrorists and separatists. Its Commander Syed Salahuddin lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan and he acts as a terrorist activist in India.
For the terrorists, the money is raised through the help of ISI and other Pakistani institutions through a trust JKART (Jammu & Kashmir Victim Relief Trust). Investigation has found that ‘Terror Fund’ in India comes from hawala and other means. Mohammed Shafi Shah, owner of Salahuddin’s benami property, is currently in Delhi’s Tihar Jail in case of Terror Funding.
