ED seeks court nod to quiz Geelani’s son-in-law in Tihar

New Delhi: The ED Friday moved a Delhi court seeking its nod to quiz resistance leader Syed Ali Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Shah in connection with a funding case.

The Enforcement Directorate also sought to question Zahoor Watali, an influential businessman allegedly having friendship with Pakistani leaders and Kashmiri separatists, and Naval Kishore Kapoor, a UAE-based businessman.

Shah, Watali and Kapoor were arrested by the NIA in the funding case and are lodged in Tihar jail. The court will hear the matter on March 19.

The NIA had earlier filed a charge sheet against the accused, including Hizbul Mujahideen head Syed Salahuddin, in the case accusing them of “conspiring to wage war against the government” and fomenting trouble in the Kashmir Valley.

The agency has charged Pakistan-based terrorists Hafiz Saeed and Salahuddin, besides 10 others with criminal conspiracy, sedition, and under stringent provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
