NEW DELHI The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday opposed the bail plea of incarcerated Hurriyat Conference leader Shabir Shah in a money laundering case.
The agency filed a reply before Additional Sessions Judge Satish Arora, who listed the matter for further hearing on April 29.
Shah and alleged hawala dealer Muhammad Aslam Wani are facing trial in a money laundering case.
Wani was arrested on August 6, 2017. He had reportedly confessed that he had passed on hawala money amounting to Rs 2.25 crore to Shabir Shah.
Wani was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on January 18, 2019.
Shah was arrested on July 25, 2017 on charges of money laundering in a case dating back to 2005 when the Delhi Police Special Cell arrested Wani.
Both men have denied the charges.
