New Delhi— A Delhi court on Wednesday sent senior Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Ahmed Shah to judicial custody for 14 days.

Shah was in the custody of Enforcement Directorate in a decade-old money laundering case.

A party spokesperson said that Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma sent him to jail after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) submitted that he was not required for further custodial interrogation.

Shah was arrested by the ED a day after several Hurriyat leaders were taken into custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in a case of alleged funding in the Valley to fuel unrest.

He was taken into custody in the August 2005 case in which the Special Cell of Delhi Police had arrested Mohammed Aslam Wani (35), an alleged hawala dealer who is currently in ED custody, claiming that Rs 63 lakh was recovered from Wani out of which Rs 52 lakh was allegedly to be delivered to Shah.

The agency had earlier issued summonses to Shah in the case, the prosecution had said, adding that Wani had claimed that he had given Rs 2.25 crore to Shah.
