The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has opposed the appeal moved by Kashmiri Separatist Asiya Andrabi and others against the seizure and attachment of their property. The agency said that it is established that premises have been used for holding meetings to commit unlawful activities and terrorist activities followed by Dukhtaran-EMillat (DEM).
“As per section 2(g) and 2 (h) of the UA (P) Act, the said house clearly comes under “proceeds of terrorism” as the house was being used for spreading terrorism and for the purpose of a terrorist organization,” said NIA.
NIA in its affidavit filed in Delhi High Court also stated that the appellant Asiya Andrabi along with her associates regularly celebrated ‘Pakistan Day’ at her residence situated at Nowshera, Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir wherein anti-India speeches and slogans were made, and insurrectionary material were distributed and pro-Pakistani slogans also were chanted along with unfurling of Pakistani flag to profess that Kashmir is a part of Pakistan and that India is an aggressor.
“During the investigation, it was clearly established from the evidence including CFSL report and statements of witnesses that house in question was being used for the furtherance of terror activities of Dukhtaran-E-Millat,” said NIA.
