Terror financing case: ED attaches properties worth over ₹73 lakh of LeT operative who had built a mosque in Haryana

FIF received huge amounts of money through Hawala channels, which was used to funding terror sleeper cells and building mosques

On Thursday the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached property worth over ₹73 lakh in a terror-financing case linked to terror leader Hafiz Saeed. The assets belong to one Mohd Salman and his family, and they were attached as part of ongoing investigations into financing of terror activities by Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks and founder of Lashkar-e-Taibar (LeT), Jamaat-Ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF).

FIF is a front end organisation of JuD and LeT, and it was formed to evade security and global sanctions against the terror organisations. This organisation was banned by Indian government in 2016 as a terrorist organisation.

ED has attached immovable and movable assets including residential flat, shot in Delhi, cash and balances in bank accounts worth ₹73.12 lakh belonging Mohd Salman and his family members under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. According to ED, although FIF is involved in humanitarian, religious and charity work, it is only a disguise and their main aim is to collection and distribution of funds for terror activities, creation of sleeper cell network and motivate youths to join terrorism.

ED says that FIF received huge amounts of money through Hawala channels, and Dubai based Mohammad Kamran had sent funds to Mohammad Salman for their operations. Salman was arrested by NIA last year, and it was revealed that one mosque was built using money sent by terror financiers. According to reports, the Khulafa-e-Rashideen mosque in the Uttawar village of Palwal, Haryana was built with funds received from FIF. Mohammad Salman is an old Hawala operative and he had used ₹70 lakh received from FIF to build the mosque.

During investigations it was found that Salman used to send the receipt of money received and photographs of construction work done using the money through e-mail.
