Srinagar: Top separatist leader and chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Shabir Ahmad Shah, has been arrested from his Sanatnagar residence where he was under house arrest since a very long time.
The Jammu and Kashmir police have arrested him on the charges of money laundering. He will reportedly be handed over to the Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday. A non-bailable warrant has been issued against him.
The Enforcement Directorate had earlier issued summons to Shah over a money laundering case for allegedly funding terror activities. The ED had also registered a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Shah
