Court issues notice to ED on bail plea 

New Delhi: Delhi High Court today issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on the bail plea of Mohammad Aslam Wani, a New Delhi based news gathering agency reported.

Wani, an alleged hawala dealer, is in custody of the ED in connection with a money laundering case involving Hurriyat leader Shabir Shah.

According to the reports, the court further sought a reply of the ED till February 12.

In November last year, the ED sought more time to file its reply on the bail plea of Wani in connection with the case.

Wani is a close aide of Hurriyat leader Shabir Shah, who has been arrested in ‘terror’ funding cases.

Earlier, Wani moved the Patiala House Court after the apex court set aside all orders by which bail to an accused was denied due to stringent bail condition in money laundering cases and directed that such cases be remanded back to the respective courts to be heard on merits.

Wani was arrested on August 6.

The ED had, on September 23, told the court that Shah admitted to receiving funds from Pakistan’s militant outfits to spread ‘terror’ in Jammu and Kashmir and others parts of the country.

The chargesheet filed by the ED stated that the separatist had admitted of talking to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed on phone on the issue of Kashmir and had last spoke to him in January this year.
