SRINAGAR — The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday attached the property of Mushtaq Ahmad Zargar alias Latram, Chief of Al Umar Mujahideen (AUM) militant group in Nowhatta area of Srinagar.

National Investigation Agency (NIA) action comes after Ministry of Home Affairs declared Latram as designated terrorist.

Mushtaq Ahmad Zargar alias Latram, a resident of Gani Mohalla, Jama Masjid, Nowhatta, Srinagar was declared as terrorist by Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in April last year.

Latram is reported to be living in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

The notice of attachment was posted on the house by police personnel. The building, located on a plot measuring 540 square feet, was attached under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, on orders from the Union Home Ministry.

Latram along with Jaish chief Masood Azhar and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen chief Omar Saeed Sheikh, was released in exchange for passengers of the hijacked aircraft IC 814 at Kandahar in Afghanistan in December, 1999.
