The National Investigation Agency has seized Rs 48 lakh in cash from a woman during an investigation into the activities of the proscribed terrorist organisation Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP).
The money was seized from K Pramodini, an employee of RIMS Imphal, Manipur. It was produced by Pramodini in presence of independent witnesses.
The amount belongs to N Sobita Devi, wife of accused Dr Mutum Shyamo Singh who is the Ex Director of JNIMS Hospital in Imphal.
The NIA found out that the amount was handed over to Pramodini by Sobita Devi for the purpose of concealing the terror funds which were collected by Mutum Shyamo Singh as part of his activities in support of proscribed organisation KCP.
The NIA had arrested Mutum Shyamo Singh on July 6, for his active involvement in KCP.
Search was conducted at that time in his house and Rs 40,03,000 in new currency and Rs 1,00,000 in old currency were also seized as proceeds of terrorism.
The agency is investigating the March 2017 case under Sections 120B of the Indian Penal Code and 20 of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act relating to the activities of the organisation.
