New Delhi:

Separatist leader and Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) chairman Shabir Shah on Thursday will be produced before the Patiala House Court in the terror funding case.

Shah was in seven-day Enforcement Directorate custody which was extended for another day on Wednesday.

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 summonses to Shah, but he never deposed before the central investigating agency.

A Delhi court had last month issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against the separatist leader.

National Investigation Agency (NIA) who is on a massive crackdown against terror funding in the valley had registered FIR against separatist leaders, Hizbul, LeT Chief Hafeez Saeed and others under sections 120B, 121, 121A IPC and 13,18,20,38,39 UAPA.

NIA has also registered a case against hard-line separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani in the matter.
