The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today said it had filed a supplementary prosecution complaint (equivalent to police chargesheet) under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Bilquies Shah, the wife of Shabir Ahmad Shah, in the Patiala House court here in a terror-funding case.

Officials in the ED said the move was an addition to the earlier prosecution complaint filed against Shabir Ahmad Shah and Mohd Aslam Wani on September 23, 2017. In the fresh complaint, Bilquies Shah has been accused of her role in the commission of the offence of money laundering in terms of Section 3 of the PMLA, they said.

The probe agency had attached the “proceeds of crime” in the form of property, located in the posh area of Srinagar belonging to Shabir Ahmad Shah, which was held in the name of his wife and daughters.

Shabir Ahmad Shah was found to be carrying out illegal activities along with his accomplice Mohd Aslam Wani, who was an activist of the banned militant organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad, the ED officials alleged. -TNS
