SRINAGAR: Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday refuted certain media reports claiming that the ACB Srinagar filed an FIR against him and his relatives regarding land allotment, potentially leading to eviction and confiscation of property.

Mirwaiz Manzil Nigeen, on behalf of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, said that a news item carried by certain media is doing the rounds which claims that ACB Srinagar has filed an FIR against the Mirwaiz and his kin in the land allotment case of his residence in Nigeen, by the custodian department and if proved Mirwaiz’s house and land will be confiscated by the authorities and he will be evicted.

The statement further said that the attempt to malign and harass Mirwaiz is clear from this threat in media, when Mirwaiz received no intimation or notice of this matter.

“It is part of the same vehement print, electronic and social media propaganda carried out against the Mirwaiz in 2018 when multiple properties including the properties of Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid, Anjuman Nusratul Islam, Darul ul Khair, Mirwaiz Manzil were all attributed to him and later all proved to be false and baseless. These things will not cow Mirwaiz down,” the statement said.
