Shah's Bail Plea Deferred Till April 2
A Delhi court on Saturday deferred the hearing on the bail plea of separatist leader Shabir Shah, arrested in a decade-old money-laundering case, till April 2.
Shahs bail plea came up for hearing before Additional Sessions Judge Satish Kumar Arora.
The court had on February 18 sought response from the Enforcement Directorate on Shahs bail plea.
The application was moved before the court on the ground of parity after the Delhi High Court recently granted bail to co-accused and alleged hawala dealer Mohammad Aslam Wani in the case.
The application submitted that the accused was wrongly and falsely implicated in the case, which was registered in 2007 for the alleged offence committed in 2005.
Shah was arrested on July 25, 2017, in the case in which the Special Cell of Delhi Police had also arrested Wani. It claimed that Rs 63 lakh was recovered from Wani, out of which Rs 52 lakh was allegedly to be delivered to Shah.
Shah is in judicial custody and lodged in Tihar Central Jail. PTI
