The Income Tax department has issued an order for the attachment of a flat owned by senior Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani in the national capital.

 

 

 

 

An order addressed to Geelani by the Income Tax Recovery Officer, New Delhi, reads: “Whereas the assessing officer has sent to the undersigned a certified copy of the certificate specifying an amount of Rs 3,62,62,160 plus interest is recoverable from you.”

It added that Geelani was hereby prohibited and restrained until further orders from transferring the property in Malviya Nagar in south Delhi.

Geelani heads the hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference in Jammu and Kashmir and advocates the state’s merger with Pakistan.
