India’s ED opposes bail plea of Shabbir Shah » Kashmir Media Service

New Delhi, April 03 (KMS): India’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) has opposed the bail plea of senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, in a false case registered against him.

The ED filed a reply before additional sessions judge Satish Arora, who listed the matter for further hearing on April 29. Shabbir Shah and another Kashmiri, Muhammad Aslam Wani, are facing trial in the case dating back to 2005.

The APHC leader was arrested on July 25, 2017 and is presently lodged in New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail. Aslam Wani, who was arrested on August 06 in 2017, was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on January 18, this year.

Both Shabbir Shah and Aslam Wani have denied the charges leveled against them by the ED.

Meanwhile, Indian Supreme Court cancelled the bail of noted Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Ahmed Watali, who is illegally detained in Tihar Jail in connection with a fake case.

The apex court claimed that India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) had collected ample evidence against the Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders for their continuous activities to wage war against India.

The bail was granted to Zahoor Watali by the Delhi High Court on September 13, 2018. He was arrested by the NIA on August 17, 2017. The apex court’s verdict came on an appeal filed by the NIA against the high court’s judgment.
