NEW DELHI: A day after NIA attached the property of Pakistan-based terrorist Mushtaq Zargar in Srinagar, it executed a similar action in respect of agricultural land owned by another terrorist operating from Pakistani soil, Basit Ahmed Reshi, in Baramulla.
Basit is a ‘listed terrorist’ under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and is said to be involved in terror activities of Lashker e Taiba arm The Resistance Front (TRF) as well as funding of terrorist acts in the Kashmir Valley. He manages and supplies arms/ammunition as well as funds for TRF from Pakistan, NIA said in a statement on Friday.
Basit had joined the militant ranks in 2015 and was allegedly involved in the planning and execution of a terror attack at Police Guard post in Sopore, in which a constable was killed and others injured. He was associated with Hizbul Mujahideen at the time and had later exfiltrated from J&K to Pakistan.
Reshi’s agriculture land measuring 9.25 marlas was attached by NIA under the provisions of UA(P) Act, with the assistance of representatives of the J&K administration and police.
Till date, NIA has attached the properties of five designated terrorists, namely US-based pro-Khalistan activist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, Canada-based Sikh terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, and Pakistan based terrorists Mushtaq Zargar @ Latram, Basit Ahmad Pir and KCF (Panjwar) Paramjit Singh @Panjwar.
NIA had recently also attached the Hurriyat Office in Srinagar, which was owned in part by Nayeem Khan, a chargesheeted accused in the Hurriyat terror funding case.
