Denying that they have received any report about separatist leaders receiving the ‘hawala’ money, the J&K Government on Tuesday said 37 people have been arrested in the state for allegedly providing such money for “spreading militant activities” in the state.
This was stated by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in a written reply to a question by BJP’s Sat Paul Sharma in the J&K Assembly.
“17 cases were registered during the last three years in connection with hawala transactions,” said the written reply, adding: “Eight cases were registered in 2013, five in 2014, three in 2015 and one so far this year.”
The reply said of 37 people, 17 were arrested in 2013, nine in 2014, eight in 2015 and three in 2016.
The reply said besides Rs 3670260 cash, 900 USD were recovered under Hawala in 2014 while 33 Gold Coins were also recovered in 2015.
The Government, however, did not disclose identity of any person allegedly involved in the Hawala cases. “No such report has been received in the past.”
The Chief Minister said Rs 5115100 was recovered since 2013 in cases related to forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank notes. “USD 6980 was recovered under same case in 2015,” she said.
Also, 116 people were arrested for possessing counterfeit currency, the CM’s reply read. “Fake Indian currency notes with a face value of Rs 51.15 lakh and USD 6,980 have been seized since 2013,” she said.
The Chief Minister denied having received any report about separatist leaders receiving ‘hawala’ money.
