Srinagar, Jul 3
A Delhi court yesterday issued a non-bailable warrant against pro-freedom leader Shabir Shah in an ongoing investigation on ‘money laundering and terror financing’, Indian Express reported. After Shah refused to join the probe, Enforcement Directorate (ED) approached the court seeking a non-bailable warrant in his name, the report said.
Shah has previously been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with over a decade-old money laundering and terror financing case registered against him, the report added.
The probe agency issued several summons to Shah over the last few years in pursuance of the August 2005 case wherein the Delhi Police’s Special Cell had arrested Mohammed Aslam Wani (35), an alleged hawala dealer, who had claimed that he had passed on Rs 2.25 crore to Shah, the report claimed, adding that Shah has never responded to the ED summons.
The ED had registered a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Shabir Shah, the report said.
