04 August 2017

All seven separatist leaders - Altaf Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Mehraj Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Naeem Khan and Bitta Karate - were later sent to 10-day NIA custody.

The agency told the court that the source of funding of properties of Shah, worth hundreds of crores of rupees, had to be unearthed.

Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma granted extension of Shah's custody after the ED's counsel insisted that the Kashmiri leader should chant "Bharat mata ki jai".

Shabir Shah was summoned for terror financing by the Enforcement Directorate, according to the confession of 35-year old Mohammad Aslam Wani.

Shabbir Ahmad Shah, on the occasion, submitted an application in the court and said that he was facing threat to his life in custody and he was forced to sign blank papers. In a quick retort, the court asked the lawyer not to convert court into TV studio.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) was granted custody of Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah for one more day by a Delhi court on Wednesday. On July 25, Shabir Shah was arrested from his residence where he was under house arrest from a very long time in Srinagar.

Shah is the founding chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), which is a part of the separatist amalgam Hurriyat Conference led by hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
