Four residential houses seized by the Indian state for allegedly providing shelter to pro-freedom rebels in Kashmir

On February 27th, Jammu and Kashmir police’s State Investigation Unit, a special unit that primarily targets political dissidents, human rights defenders, and pro-freedom activists, seized four houses for allegedly providing shelter to pro-freedom rebels in Srinagar district[14].

On 24th February, properties of three persons who were allegedly involved in pro-freedom activities were similarly seized by the Special Investigation Unit in Ramban district of occupied Jammu and Kashmir[15]. The properties include a single-storey house of a Kashmiri named Abdul Majid Lone, a house of another Kashmiri Mohammed Farooq, and a chemist shop of Shahdin Padyar.

In the year 2022, the Indian state seized, in a similar fashion, under draconian laws such as the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 24 structures (houses, schools, land and orchards) of Kashmiris, and identified more than 350 for seizure in the future[16].
