The Indian occupation authorities have sealed the house belonging to late APHC leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, reported Indian media.

Occupied Jammu and Kashmir State Investigation Agency (SIA) on Saturday seized a house in the Barzulla area in Srinagar which was registered in the name of late Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

The property was believed to have been purchased in the late 1990s by Jamat-e-Islami (JeI) and was registered in Geelani’s name who used to live there till early 2000 when he shifted to the Hyderpora area of the city.

Ali Shah Geelani died in September last year.

The property was later used as the residence of ‘Ameer’ (chief) of the JeI, the officials said.

The SIA also seized another residential house in the same area.

The SIA’s action is part of the seizure of several properties belonging to the JeI, which is a banned organisation.

The SIA has identified as many as 188 JeI properties across the region which have either been notified or are under the process of being notified for further legal action.

These are a result of investigation of case FIR number 17 of 2019 U/S 10, 11 and 13 of Police Station Batmaloo being investigated by the agency.

The move is aimed at choking the availability of funds for objectionable activities and to dismantle the ecosystem of anti-national elements hostile to India’s sovereignty, officials said.
