NEW DELHI, April 9. /TASS/. The Indian Ministry of Home Affairs has frozen seven bank accounts belonging to Greenpeace environmental organisation, Hindu newspaper reported on Thursday.
The move follows a report published by the Indian intelligence service, which accuseed Greenpeace and a number of other non-governmental organizations of affecting the country's development, Hindu said.
The newspaper said that the Greenpeace Indian office would not be able to get financing from overseas, which totaled $1.7 million last year.
The Greenpeace office in New Delhi told TASS that the government had not yet officially informed them about the accounts' freezing.
The Indian government has earlier repeatedly banned local Greenpeace activists from leaving the country and refused to issue visas to its foreign representatives.
On March 4, the Indian government banned 69 NGOs financed from overseas, as, according to intelligence reports, in 2014 they received more than $1.6 billion used to destablise the situation in India.
