Srinagar: Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday shifted pro-freedom leader Shabir Shah to New Delhi, sources said.
Shah is likely to be produced before a court in New Delhi later in the day.
Earlier Shah was arrested late last night by over a decade-old money laundering case against him for alleged militancy financing.
Shah was arrested from his residence in Srinagar and taken to Humhama where from he was shifted to New Delhi at 11 am.
The ED had issued multiple summons to Shah, but he never deposed before the agency. A Delhi court had this month issued a non-bailable warrant against nim that officials said was executed. Shah remained under continuous house detention.
Pertinently, a court in New Delhi remanded seven Hurriyat leaders to custody of National Investigation Agency (NIA) for 10 days till August 4 who are accused for their role in Kashmir unrest.
The seven arrested leaders include Nayeem Khan, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Aftab Hilali Shah alias Shahid-ul-Islam, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Merajuddin Kalwal and Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bitta Karate.
