Terror funding: ED attaches assets in Mangaluru

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached assets worth Rs 5 lakh of persons from Mangaluru allegedly involved in terror financing for Indian Mujahideen (IM).

In a statement, the agency said the attached properties include a residential property in Mangaluru and it belongs to persons involved in terror financing.

“One Dheeraj Sao was receiving cash deposits in his bank accounts from various parts of the country for a commission. After keeping his commission, he used to transfer the remaining amounts to bank accounts of persons associated with terror outfit Indian Mujahideen such as Zubair Hussain, Aysha Banu, Raju Khan and others,” it said.

The ED said its investigators succeeded in trailing the money and claimed that Aysha Banu and Zubair Hussain have acquired a residential property located at Panjimogeru in Mangaluru.

“All the accused were linked to Pakistani national Khalid and as per his direction, have opened accounts in various banks to receive money and transfer the same to members of terrorist outfit Indian Mujahideen after deducting their commission,” the statement said.

“That in all these accounts mostly cash had been deposited by unknown persons from various locations in India other than home branch and the cash deposits were withdrawn immediately through an ATM and used for terror activities,” it said.
