Srinagar. The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Wednesday started the process of attaching the house of terrorist Adil Wani, who killed a Kashmiri Pandit in Shopian, while arresting his father and three brothers for giving him shelter. Police said that Adil Wani had killed Sunil Kumar Bhat in a garden in Shopian village on Tuesday and later hid in his house in Kutpora.
He said the security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation but Wani escaped in the dark after hurling a grenade at the police party. He is a terrorist of the banned terrorist group Al-Badr.
Police recovered arms and ammunition from Wani’s house during a search operation, following which the authorities started the process of attaching the house and arrested his father and three brothers.
Eyewitnesses and relatives of Sunil Kumar had identified Wani as the attacker. On Tuesday, Wani had fired indiscriminately at Sunil Kumar and his brother while working in the apple orchard.
The Jammu and Kashmir Police had earlier this year announced that it would initiate the process of attaching certain immovable properties used for the purpose of terrorism in accordance with Sections 2 (g) and 25 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (ULP). He also appealed to the people not to give shelter to terrorists or associates of terrorists.
