Shabir Shah’s aide Aslam Wani arrested in Srinagar for money laundering case

Srinagar: The Enforcement Directorate on Sunday arrested Muhammad Aslam Wani, an alleged hawala dealer, who is an aide of separatist leader Shabir Shah, in connection with a decade-old money laundering case against Shah besides charges of funding terrorist activities in the Kashmir Valley.

ED had got a non-bailable warrant issued against him from a Delhi court

Wani, 36, was arrested from Srinagar by the Enforcement Directorate with the help of the state police, said an official adding that he is being flown to Delhi.

Prior to his arrest, the ED had got a non-bailable warrant issued against him from a Delhi court as he had avoided multiple summonses for his appearance in the case.

Shah himself was arrested last month in Srinagar and shifted to New Delhi in connection with a terror funding hawala racket being probed by the Enforcement Directorate.

The ED action against Shah and Wani is in pursuance of an August 2005 case, wherein the Delhi Police’s Special Cell had arrested Wani, who had claimed that he passed on Rs 2.25 crore to Shah received through hawala channel by him.

The Enforcement Directorate and the National Investigation Agency have arrested many Kashmiri separatist leaders in the past one month.
