The Enforcement Directorate on Saturday, attached assets worth Rs 11.86 crore of former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah and others in connection with its money laundering probe, reported PTI.

The probe was linked to alleged financial irregularities in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association. 

According to official sources, the agency has issued a provisional attachment order under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and the attached properties are located in Jammu and Srinagar.

While two immovable assets are residential, one is a commercial property. Three other plots of land have also been attached by the Enforcement Directorate. 

Omar Abdullah told PTI, "There can be no justification for ED seizures as properties are largely ancestral; the action would be fought in court of law."

According to the officials, while the book value of these attached properties is Rs 11.86 crore, their market value is about Rs 60-70 crore.

The 83-year-old NC patron has been questioned by the ED in this case a number of times, the last being in October at Srinagar.
