Ambulance among several assets impounded in 46 cases of ‘militancy’ in Kashmir

The Jammu and Kashmir Police have given sanction to the confiscation of assets in 46 militancy-related cases under a controversial anti-insurgency law in the past two years.
In these 46 cases, the police have confiscated 61 vehicles, which includes many SUVs, five houses, six shops and other movable and immovable assets.

“Following the due procedures of the law the Jammu and Kashmir Police has in last couple of years or so accorded sanction for seizure/attachments of four wheelers, motorcycles, cash, land houses and shops through different orders to ensure that the terror activities are under check,” a press release issued on Tuesday noted.

The vehicles impounded under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, also includes an ambulance, trucks and 23 two-wheelers.

Section 25 Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act 1967 of the Indian Constitution provides for prevention of certain unlawful activities of individuals and associations, and for dealing with militant activities.

The vehicles also include a Hyundai car of woman resistance leader Sofi Fahmeeda.

The immovable property which has been seized includes five houses including the house of Mehmooda Begum, who is mother-in-law of Asiya Andrabi, the incarcerated leader of women resistance group, Dukhtran-e-Milat.

The police have also seized six shops and over 1.5 kanal land of Nazir Ahmad Wani in Pulwama.

In this year, the police have sanctioned seizure of eleven vehicles which include six four wheelers and five two wheelers.
