The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has attached the properties of Mohamma Yaseen, an operative associated with the banned terror group Tehreek ul Mujahideen (TuM). This action comes in connection with a case involving the seizure of arms, ammunition, explosives, and narcotics in Jammu and Kashmir.

An NIA spokesperson confirmed that four properties belonging to Yaseen have been attached following directives from the NIA Special Court in Jammu. These properties are located in Yaseen’s village, Dhrooti (Dhabi), situated in the Poonch district.

Yaseen was apprehended on December 27, 2020, and a significant cache of arms, ammunition, and explosives was seized from his possession during the arrest.

A chargesheet was filed on June 24, 2021, implicating Yaseen under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Arms Act, Explosive Substances Act, and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act [UA (P) Act].

The case originated with the arrest of Mohammad Mustafa, subsequently leading to the apprehension of Yaseen and another individual named Mohammad Farooq. This series of arrests revealed the possession of arms, ammunition, explosives, and narcotics by the accused individuals.

Further investigations conducted by the NIA uncovered a conspiracy involving plans to target religious sites in the Mendhar area using grenades.
