New Delhi: Continuing with its massive crackdown on the terror network in the country, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday attached four properties, owned by members of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) in Kupwara district.

In a statement, a spokesperson of the anti terror body said that the action comes a day after NIA attached six immovable properties of a top militant of the banned Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist outfit in J&K, as part of its drive to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure in Kashmir and other parts of India.

The statement said that the four properties attached Thursday were found to be proceeds of terrorism, as per NIA 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.”

It said that 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.”
