Properties of both terrorists have been attached on the recent orders of the NIA Special Court, Jammu
On Tuesday, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) attached eight properties of two key Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operatives in the 2018 case relating to the forcible release of a Pakistan-based terrorist after attacking a police party at a Srinagar hospital.
A NIA spokesperson said that of the eight properties attached, five belong to Mohammad Shafi Wani and three belong to Mohd Tikka Khan.
The properties of the two terrorists, who are residents of Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama District, have been attached to the recent orders of the NIA Special Court, Jammu.
The case involved the killing of two personnel of the Jammu and Kashmir Police during firing on a police party escorting LeT terrorist Naveed Jatt aka Abu Hanzla to the SMHS Hospital, Srinagar, for a medical examination on February 6, 2018.
Jatt, a terrorist of Pakistani origin, was forcibly released in the attack, which was carried out by the two accused, along with others, on orders from their Pakistan-based LeT Commanders.
Jatt was neutralized in an encounter with the security forces later in 2018.
“The attached immovable properties of Wani and Khan, both identified as overground workers of the LeT, include various plots of land. The residential house of Shafi has also been attached,” the official said.
The two accused were arrested from their Pulwama homes on February 8, 2018, and were found to be in possession of weapons.
The NIA had charge-sheeted them on August 3, 2018, and they are currently facing trial under several Sections of the IPC, UA(P)A, and Arms Act before the NIA Special Court, Jammu.
