ED files charge sheet against Shabir Shah

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) Saturday filed a charge sheet against separatist leader Shabir Shah and his accomplice, a suspected hawala dealer in connection with a 2005 money laundering case.

The final report, filed before Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma, also named the alleged hawala dealer Mohammed Alsam Wani, who is in judicial custody along with Shah.

The case dates back to August 2005 in which the Delhi Police’s Special Cell had earlier arrested Wani.

Wani had then claimed that he had given Rs 2.25 crore to Shah, following which the ED had registered a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against the duo.

Shah was arrested by the ED on July 25. The agency arrested Wani on August 6.
