In a recent action, the NIA attached 152 bank accounts belonging to naxalites. The agency also found one mutual fund account to the tune of Rs 20.6 crore.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has undertaken several major operations in recent years and one among them is attaching the properties of extremists.
The NIA has attached properties of Left Wing extremists, those belonging to gangsters in Punjab, ones owned by the banned Popular Front of India (PFI) and also properties held by terrorists in Jammu And Kashmir.
While dealing with terrorists or naxalites, it is not enough if arrests and subsequent investigations are made. It is very important to squeeze the funding as money remains a major ideology for a lot many of them, explains an official to OneIndia.
