Police on Tuesday late evening arrested the chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah from his residence and took him to Humhama guest house.
A party spokesperson said police party from Police Station Sadder headed by DSP came to Shah’s Sanat Nagar residence where he is under house arrest and told him to accompany them for one hour.
“As police didn’t return Shah Sahib for more than an hour, we came enquired and came to know that he has been taken to Humhama guest house,” spokesperson said.
Officials said Shah is expected to be brought to Delhi today where he will be produced in a court.
The Enforcement Directorate had issued multiple summons to Shah, but he never deposed before the central investigating agency, sources said.
A Delhi court had earlier this month issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against the separatist leader.
“The warrant has been executed,” a senior official said.
The Enforcement Directorate, sources said, wants to probe the “proceeds of crime” of alleged ‘terror’ financing in this case.
Pertinently, on Monday, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested seven pro-freedom leaders and activists over alleged money laundering charges in Srinagar.
