Jammu Kashmir: The State Investigation Agency (SIA) on Tuesday filed an indictment against five accused in the terrorism financing case registered last year. This charge sheet has revealed the complicity between the terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed (JEM) and the gangsters of Punjab. The case was registered in November last year following the recovery of Rs 43 lakh from a vehicle bound for Kashmir.
The name of the JEM commander is in the charge sheet
An SIA official said that before the special court of National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Jammu, a JEM commander residing in Pakistan and 3 gangsters from Punjab were booked under various sections of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, Arms Act and IPC . Charges were filed. This is the second charge sheet filed by the SIA in the terror financing case in the last three months after taking over the investigation in January. The official said the name of JeM commander Aashiq Nengru alias Aashiq Maulvi is included in the charge sheet. Nengroo is a resident of Hanjan Bala Rajpora village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district. Currently, he is involved in terrorist activities from across the border.
Rs 43 lakh recovered
The other four accused are Muzammil Ahmed Malik of Pulwama and Ravi Kumar alias Nona, Jaideep Dhawan alias Deep and Amarbir Singh alias Gopi Mahal, residents of Punjab, the SIA official said. The case relates to seizure of Rs 43 lakh by Jammu Police from 3 persons traveling in a passenger taxi towards Kashmir on November 16, 2021 at Siddhara Bridge. The original charge sheet was filed on May 14 against two accused, Mouzam Parvez and Umar Farooq. Both are residents of Dalipora village in Pulwama, who had collected cash from Amritsar in Punjab.
“Investigation revealed that accused Parvez and Farooq conspired with Muzammil Malik and accused Nengroo and facilitated access to funds to be distributed to JeM terrorists operating in the Valley to launch terrorist attacks in India,” the official said.
