In a significant development, the State Investigation Agency (SIA) has taken decisive action against a JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammed) Over Ground Worker (OGW) in Pulwama. The agency has attached seven Kanals and seven Marlas of orchard land, located at village Chitrat, Arigam Pulwama, under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UA(P)A).
The orchard property, measuring seven kanals and seven marlas, is registered under Khasra Number 207 and belongs to Ghulam Nabi Wani, the father of the accused Ishfaq Ahmad Wani. The accused, a resident of Chitrat Arigam Pulwama, is allegedly affiliated with JeM, a banned terrorist organization.
The action was taken by the State Investigation Agency through an order dated 13.11.2023, issued by the competent authority. This move comes as part of the government’s relentless efforts to curb terrorism and its financial support networks. Section 25 of the UA(P)A empowers authorities to seize properties believed to be linked to unlawful activities.
This latest development underscores the commitment of security agencies to dismantle the infrastructure supporting terrorism and sends a strong message about the zero-tolerance approach towards those involved in activities posing a threat to national security.
Officials from the State Investigation Agency have emphasized the importance of such measures in disrupting the financial networks that enable terrorist organizations to operate. The seized orchard land is now under the control of the authorities, awaiting further legal proceedings.
Residents in the region have expressed relief at the proactive stance taken by the security agencies, hoping that such actions will contribute to maintaining peace and stability in the area. The government, through agencies like the SIA, continues to prioritize the safety and security of its citizens, taking necessary steps to neutralize threats posed by terrorist elements and their support networks.
