Investigating Officers
 

The forfeiture of properties is entirely dependent upon the investigation carried out by the investigating officer for tracing and identifying the properties. The investigating officer has to carry out the following activities:

  1. To trace and identify the illegally acquired properties of the accused and his relatives and associates.
  2. To collect some evidence which could establish that the properties are prima facie illegal.
  3. To seize or freeze such properties under section 68 F 2 of the Act and to send the seizing/freezing order to the jurisdictional Competent Authority for confirmation.
  4. To carry out further investigation and collect more evidence to support the prima facie finding that the properties are illegally acquired properties.
