New Delhi: The Income-Tax Department seized a house belonging to Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani in Delhi today, in connection with a 3.62-crore tax evasion case against him.

The property, located in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar area has been sealed after he allegedly "failing" to pay income tax for assessment years 1996-97 to 2001-02, as per an order accessed by news agency PTI.

The department has undertaken the action under section 222 of the I-T Act (assessee deemed in default of tax payment) and it has "prohibited and restrained" the Hurriyat Conference leader from transferring the property.

The TRO is an enforcement action taking arm of the tax department and it deals with cases of willful defaulters. The authority is empowered to attach an asset and subsequently auction it to realise the tax dues.

Last month, The Enforcement Directorate had levied a penalty of Rs. 14.40 lakh on Syed Ali Shah Geelani in a 17-year-old case of illegal possession of foreign currency.
