NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday attached five properties, including four related to the terrorist-gangster-drug smuggler nexus case and a fifth in another case related to the 2022 Chanapora arms seizure of Kashmir, on grounds of being “proceeds of terrorism.”
The four properties, including an SUV, attached in the terrorist-gangster case are owned by members of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. In a coordinated swoop by NIA teams in Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh, these properties were attached for having been used to hatch terror conspiracies and execute serious crimes. A flat in Lucknow belonging to Vikas Singh, harbourer of the terror gang and two other properties in Fazilka, Punjab owned by accused Dalip Kumar were attached, while an SUV registered in the name of Joginder Singh was seized in Haryana.
While Vikas Singh, as per NIA probe, is an associate of Bishnoi and had harboured terrorists including those accused in the RPG attack on Punjab Police headquarters, Joginder Singh is the father of gangster Kala Rana, also a close associate of Bishnoi. Joginder, as per NIA, was aiding gang members by allowing them to use his SUV for transporting arms and ammunition. The property belonging to Dalip Kumar was being used for storage and concealment of weapons and harbouring gang members, said a NIA spokesperson.
In the Kashmir arms seizure case, NIA attached the house of key conspirator Aamir Mushtaq Ganaie located in Chanapora region of Srinagar. The accused had used the house for conspiring and committing terror crimes against the nation, an NIA spokesperson said on Saturday.
Ganaie and his associates were cadres of Lashker-e-Taiba arm The Resistance Front (TRF) and had links with Pakistani-based handlers, operatives and commanders of TRF and LeT, the spokesperson added.
