In September 2017, Shabir Ahmad Shah, Kashmiri separatist had ED file a charge-sheet against her. Now, the Enforcement Directorate has filed a supplementary charge sheet against his wife Biliquies Shah. The ED further alleged throughout the new charge sheet that Ms. Shah was engaged in money laundering, too.
The suspected proceeds from the crime were previously attached by the organisation in the manner of a property situated in the upper-class region of Srinagar, owned in her title as well as that of her daughters. Mr. Shah has been found engaged in illegal acts together with his associate, Mohammed Aslam Wani, who had been a supporter of Jaish-e – Mohammed, the outlawed terrorist group, as per the report.
Mr. Wani reportedly worked as a messenger via the ‘hawala’ system to receive payments that were sent from Pakistan. A chargesheet filed by the Delhi Police seems to be the basis of the ED investigation. Mr Shah acknowledged that he would have hardly any source of revenue, and he refused to justify any valid means of funds for his expenditures, as per the report.
Kashmir separatist leader Shabir Shah’s 19 years old daughter, who has been studying law in the UK, has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate in relation with the money laundering case, 2005. Bilquies Shah who is 48-year-old and Sama’s mother, who is also a doctor, has travelled from place to place telling the Jammu and New Delhi head offices, of the Enforcement Directorate.
