Jammu, June 3, 2017: The Enforcement Directorate on Saturday issued fresh summons to Kashmiri Separatist leader Shabir Shah in connection with a decade-old of money laundering lodged against him.

Officials said the agency has asked Shah to depose before the investigating officer (IO) of the case here on June 6.

The ED had issued a similar summons to Shah on May 25 but he had failed to keep the date.

Fresh summons have now been issued to Shah, they said.

Last month, the ED had issued notices to Hurriyat leader and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman Yasin Malik in the same regard.

They had replied seeking more time to appear as they are currently under house arrest.

Earlier in the day, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) said it has seized over Rs 1 crore during nearly two dozen raids conducted in Srinagar, Delhi, and Haryana in connection with terror funding by Pakistan-based groups in the Kashmir Valley.

The raids are on at more than 14 places in Srinagar, eight in Delhi, and one in Haryana, including areas in Ballimaran and Chandni Chowk in the national capital, and a cold storage in Haryana’s Sonepat, an NIA official said.
