Earlier also on May 25, the Agency had issued summons to Shah in the same connection but he failed to join the investigation in the case of 2005 in which Special Cell of Delhi Police had arrested one Mohammed Aslam Wani who claimed to have had delivered Rs 2.25-crore to Shah for terror activities, said the sources.
ED sources said that Wani was arrested allegedly with Rs 63-lakh, received through ‘hawala’ channels from the Middle East, and a large cache of ammunition on August 26, 2005. During questioning, he had told the police that Rs 50-lakh was to be delivered to Shah and Rs 10-lakh to Jaish-e-Mohammad area commander in Srinagar, Abu Baqar, and the rest was his commission.
He also claimed that he had delivered around Rs 2.25-crore to Shah and his kin in installments. The ED had registered a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Shah and Wani and had asked Shah to depose before the investigating officer (IO) of the case here on June 6.
