New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday extended the judicial custody of Democratic Freedom Party Chief Shabir Shah and Mohammad Aslam Wani by two weeks in a decade-old fabricated money laundering case.
Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma extended the custody of Shah and Mohammad Aslam Wani till September 27 when they were produced before the court through video-conferencing after expiry of their earlier custody.
During the arguments, Shah’s advocate M S Khan told the court his client was not given proper medical and other necessary facilities in the jail. The court has sought a reply from the authorities concerned on Khan’s submission.
Shah was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on July 26, a day after several Hurriyat leaders were taken into custody of the National Investigating Agency (NIA) in a case of alleged terror funding in the Valley.
The arrest was made in connection with an August 2005 case in which the Special Cell of Delhi Police had then nabbed Wani, claiming that Rs 63 lakh was recovered from the alleged hawala leader, out of which Rs 52 lakh was allegedly meant to be delivered to Shah.
NIA have cracked down on Hurriyat leaders, arresting Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Altaf Ahmed Shah and six other Kashmiri leaders in alleged terror funding case.
