KUPWARA — A day after the property of a TRF militant was attached in Sopore, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday attached the property of a slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant commander in Kralpora area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.

An official told the news agency KNO that the property belonged to Bashir Ahmed Peer alias Imtiyaz Alam son of Late Mohammad Sikander Peer, a resident of Babapora, Kralpora who was shot dead in Rawalpindi on February 21 by unknown gunmen in Pakistan.

“Immovable property land measuring 3 kanals under survey numbers 3807/1479, 3810/1480, 1497and 1480 situated at Estate Batpora, Tehsil Kralpora, District Kupwara, J&K (UT) was attached by the NIA and were accompanied by the Jammu and Kashmir Police,” the official added.

He said Imtiyaz was also designated an ‘individual terrorist’ under the UA(P)A and accused of NIA Case RC-29/2021/NIA/DLI by the order of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, dated 13-02-2023.

Notably, Peer as per the Ministry of Home Affairs participated in a number of online propaganda groups to unite ex-militants and other cadres for the expansion of activities of Hizbul Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Taiba, and other militant organizations.
