‘Terror Funding’: Case against Shabir Shah adjourned till Oct 13

The Patalia court has adjourned the terror funding case against separatist leader Shabir Shah and his close aide Aslam Wani to October 13.

According to an earlier report, the Patiala court was to hear the matter today.

On Monday, Aslam Wani, close aide of separatist Shah, withdrew his bail application in connection with the terror-funding case.

On September 23, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) told a Delhi court that Shah has admitted to receiving funds from Pakistan’s terror outfits to spread terror in Jammu and Kashmir and others parts of India. The ED sources said that his close aide, Mohammad Aslam Wani, also admitted to his complicity in the crime.

The charge sheet filed by ED further states that Shabir Shah has admitted that he talks to Hafiz Saeed on phone on the issue of Kashmir, and last spoke to him in January 2017.

Shah also confessed to have received funds from Pakistan to promote ‘terror activities’ in Jammu and Kashmir and others parts of India, the charge sheet said.

According to the reports, Shah admitted that he does not file any Income Tax Return regarding his income, and that he only receives donations in cash from locals and his well-wishers towards party fund which amounts to Rs. 8 to 10 lakh per annum.
