Bail plea of separatist Shabir Shah rejected

A Delhi court has rejected the bail plea of Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah in a 2007 money laundering case related to alleged terror financing.

Additional Sessions Judge denied the relief to Shah citing the on-going probe and dismissed his fresh bail plea.

The court had on August 22 last year, rejected Shah’s earlier bail plea after the Enforcement Directorate said it was probing whether he had received money from countries such as Pakistan to promote terrorism in India.

On November 15, the court had framed money laundering charges against Shah and alleged hawala dealer Mohammad Aslam Wani in the case.

Both the accused have pleaded not guilty.
