Srinagar, Aug 1: The Special Investigation Unit (SIU) of Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday attached property in north Kashmir’s Kupwara of a terrorist operating from Pakistan. A police spokesman said land measuring 6 kanals and 3 marlas was attached.
The spokesman added that land belonging to Abdul Rashid Qureshi alias FarooqQureshi, a resident of Kachama, KralporaKupwara, who is operating from Pakistan was attached by the SIU Kupwara following an investigation of a first information report (FIR).
He said following extensive intelligence gathering and meticulous investigations in case FIR number 276/2022 of Police Station Kupwara registered under Sections 120-B, 121, 121-A, 122, 123 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) & 17, 18, 18-A, 18-B, 20, 38, 39, 40 of UA(P)A, the team of SIU Kupwara Police led to the identification and subsequent attachment of the terrorist's property of land measuring 6 kanals and 3 marlas located at multiple locations within the district at village Kachama.
"This measure taken by the police aims to disrupt his illicit network and restrict his ability to carry out further acts of terror. It is pertinent to mention that FarooqQureshi has been a persistent threat to peace and security of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir since the time he exfiltrated to Pakistan in the early 1990s," the spokesman said.
The spokesman said that Qureshi is a member of the Al-Barq terror outfit and presently operating from Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir (PoJK) as launching commander. His strategic involvement in numerous acts of terror has caused immense suffering and loss of innocent lives in the Valley in the past, he said. Jammu and Kashmir Police have been actively pursuing his acts to bring an end to his destructive activities, the spokesman added.
Meanwhile, attachment of the property serves as a strong message to terrorists and their supporters that their actions will not go unnoticed or unpunished. It underscores the unwavering commitment of Jammu and Kashmir Police to combating terrorism at its roots and dismantling its infrastructure, the spokesman said.
