The National Investigating Agency (NIA) has seized Rs. 1.14 crore from a businessman suspected to have to have links with a banned northeast terror outfit, PREPAK-UPPK.
 
The NIA website said the accused admitted to receiving the cash from N Shanti Meitie, a self-styled general secretary of the People's Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak - United People's Party of Kangleipak, a banned terror organisation active in Manipur. The agency officials refused to name the accused.
 
“This is the biggest seizure of cash so far by the NIA. In the past, several moveable and immovable assets have been seized under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act during investigations by the agency,” the statement said.
 
The alleged involvement of the businessman came to light when the NIA was investigating that some terror outfits had invested in real estate in Bangalore.
