SRINAGAR: SIA has identified more assets of banned Jamaat-e-Islami in district Kupwara of J&K worth crores.

SIA in a statement said, “Today on 29.05.2023 in District Kupwara, property worth INR 03 crores (approximately) after being notified by DM Kupwara on the recommendation of SIA of J&K, has been barred with restrictions on usage and entry”.

To choke the availability of funds for secessionist activities and to dismantle the ecosystem of anti-national elements & terror networks hostile to India’s national security, sovereignty, integrity and unity, property belonging to and held by banned JeI at Kupwara has been notified by concerned District Magistrates in exercise of the powers conferred under section 8 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 & Notification No. 14017/7/2019, dated 28- February- 2019 of Union Ministry of Home Affairs, SIA said in the statement.

The property is a shopping complex comprising 20 shops along with appurtenant land falling under survey number 2990/2666/270 and survey number 3551/2979/263 has been sealed and entry / usage barred has been prohibited, reads the notification.

Additionally“Red entry” to this effect has been made in the relevant revenue records. With this SIA Kashmir has got 57 properties of JeI notified till date. The action, it is expected, would significantly dent terror funding in J&K besides being another major step in restoring rule of law & a society without fear, SIA in a statement.

Pertinently, SIA has identified as many as 188 JeI properties across the UT of J&K which have either been notified or are under the process of being notified for further legal action.
