Singh has been accused of funding militancy in Jammu and Kashmir and has been on the run for quite some time. He was reportedly living in Dubai and wanted in many cases in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.

As per The Tribune, The attachment of the property is a result of the SIA’s investigation into the seizure of Rs 15 lakh hawala money at Nagrota in Jammu. The agency has taken the help of the Punjab Police to attach the property of Singh in the presence of an executive magistrate in compliance with the court orders.

“Further investigation has revealed that the sum seized was being transported from Punjab to Kashmir to finance the terror activities of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM),” an official said.

The State Investigation Agency (SIA) has taken its first action outside of Jammu and Kashmir in this case, according to SIA DSP Bhupinder Kumar.

The SIA has been active in its efforts to combat terrorism and has arrested two JeM associates in 2021, filing charges against them for terror financing. The associates, identified as Parvez and Farooq, were in close contact with handlers across the border and with terrorists in South Kashmir and Punjab, and conspired with militants Muzamil Malik and Ashiq Nengroo to move terror funds to be distributed among JeM operatives in Kashmir for launching attacks in India.
