Srinagar- The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday said that they have attached five residential houses for supporting militant activities in Srinagar district.
In a statement issued here, a police spokesperson said that five residential houses of wilful harbourers of militants were attached as per section 2(g) and section 25 of UAP Act.
“These are the houses where it has been proved beyond doubt that these houses were used for the purpose of militancy and the shelter/harbour was voluntarily/knowingly given by the member(s) of the house. Many attacks on civilians, security forces were conspired and planned by militants while using these houses as hideouts,” he said.
Giving a break-up of the houses, the spokesperson said that two were attached in the jurisdiction of Police Station Parimpora and one each in Pantha Chowk, Nowhatta and Zakoora.
“Some more such houses have been identified and any wilful harbouring will be dealt with full force of law. Citizens are once again requested not to harbour or give shelter to militants, failing which we will be forced to take resort to attachment proceedings,” he said.
The spokesperson further said that in case of any forced / coercive entry by militants into any house, the matter should be brought to the notice of police immediately.
