“Earlier, a member of the Tehreek-e-Jehad-e-Islami (TJI) and now The Resistance Front (TRF), Almas’s strategic involvement in numerous acts of terror has caused immense suffering and loss of innocent lives in Kashmir in the past. J&K Police has been pursuing his acts to bring an end to his destructive activities,” the statement said.

“This measure aims to disrupt his illicit network and restrict his ability to carry out further acts of terror,” the SIU statement said.

It said that the attachment of the property serves as a strong message to terrorists and their supporters that their actions would not go unnoticed or unpunished.

“It underscores the unwavering commitment of J&K Police to combating terrorism at its roots and dismantling its infrastructure,” the statement said.
