On being asked about involvement in terror funding case, Shabir Shah said that there is no truth to it and it is political vendetta.
On Tuesday, Shabir was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with over a decade-old money laundering case against him for alleged terror financing.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had issued multiple summons to Shah, but he never deposed before the central investigating agency.
A Delhi court had earlier this month issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against the separatist leader.
The agency had issued several summons to Shah over the last few years in pursuance of the August 2005 case, wherein the Delhi Police’s Special Cell had arrested Mohammed Aslam Wani (35), an alleged hawala dealer, who had claimed that he passed on Rs 2.25 crore to Shah.
