SRINAGAR, May 9: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today attached four more properties, owned by members of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), in Kupwara district.

A spokesperson of NIA said the four properties in Kupwara attached today were found to be proceeds of terrorism, as per their investigations.
“The properties, which were used to hatch terror conspiracies and carry out terrorist attacks, belonged to accused Mohammad Alam Bhat, Mohammad Yousuf Khawaja, Shabir Ahmed Gakhad, Zakir Hussain Mir, all associated with Pakistan-based handlers / operatives / commanders of HM,” the NIA said.
The four properties attached under UA(P) Act include two immovable properties, including a house each belonging to Alam Bhat and Mohammad Yousaf Khawaja in Karnah area of Kupwara. Two movable properties, in the form of Tata Sumo vehicles, have also been attached.
According to investigations by NIA, the houses of Bhat and Khawaja were used as shelter, warehouse for storage and concealment of arms and ammunition, and also for harbouring of terrorists.
The two vehicles were used as a safe mode for transporting arms and ammunitions, NIA said.
NIA had registered this case in February 2019 against HM members for the supply of weapons, arms, ammunitions and narcotics from Pakistan occupied Kashmir to India.
The NIA investigations have revealed that the four men were involved in illegal supply of weapons, arms, ammunitions and narcotics. They were actively engaged in spreading and strengthening militancy in Kashmir.
Further investigations are continuing in this case, the NIA said.
