The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday informed a Delhi court that Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah colluded with Pakistan to create unrest in Jammu and Kashmir.

Opposing the bail plea of the Kashmiri separatist leader, the Enforcement Directorate alleged that Shabir Shah was also involved in terror financing activities.

The agency alleged that Shabir Shah was in touch with terrorist outfit Jamat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed and was involved in generating huge proceeds of crime from various countries to create unrest in Kashmir.
 
The agency claimed that to prevent leaving a trail of incriminating evidence, criminals disguise the illegal origins of their wealth through money laundering.

The Enforcement Directorate had arrested Shabir Shah on July 25, 2017, in connection with a 2005 money laundering case. 

In another case, the National Investigation Agency took custody of Shabir Shah in June 2019 as part of its own investigation into terror funding involving Hafiz Saeed. Besides Shabir, other separatist leaders like Masrat Alam and Asiya Andrabi are also in judicial custody in the case.

Shabir Shah had recently moved a bail application. In the bail plea, he cited the provisions of sec 436A of the Code of Criminal Procedure to contend he had already undergone half the sentence prescribed for the offence of Money Laundering under section 4 of PMLA.
