In an action proving that there is terrorist presence in the Karnataka, especially in Dakisha Kannada, the Enforcemment Directorate (ED) has attached a property worth Rs 5 lakh belonging to workers of Indian Mujahideen Terrorist organisation and has confirmed that they also have Pakistani connection, reports Kannada Prabha.

Under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002, (PMLA) ED has attached property valued at Rs 5 lakh in Mangaluru. This property belongs to persons who supposedly help terrorists to get funds. They also have connections with Pakistanis said the ED.

Funds were being credited into the account of one Dheeraj Savo from various parts of the country. He would deduct his commission and transfer the funds to the various accounts of Indian Mujahiddeen members.  The money was transferred to Zuber Hussain, Ayesha Banu and Raju Khan and others in Mangaluru, confirmed ED.

In fact in 2013 itself ED had arrested Ayesha Banu and others. From this money Ayesha Banu and Zaber Hussain had bought a property at Panjimogeru in Mangaluru. The accused are in contact with one Khalid from Pakistan.  As per his instructions they had opened accounts in different banks.  The funds used to be transferred to these accounts. They would deduct their commission and transfer the rest to various accounts of IM terrorists. When all their accounts were verified it was found that money was being deposited into them from various parts of the country. 

Soon after money was credited barring the source accounts, money used to be withdrawn from the rest of the accounts. This was being used for terrorist activities.  Investigations are on to find out others involved and their connections, ED said.
