What does the law says?

As per Section 14 of the Gangster Act, the district magistrate has the power to attach property, both moveable and immoveable, in case there is a reason to believe that the accused gangster acquired the property as commission for an offense triable under the law. It will be the booked person’s responsibility to prove to the administration that the attached property(s) was not accumulated by illegal means, and they have to present evidence to support the claim.
