he Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday opposed the bail plea of Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah and further accused him of colluding with Pakistan to create unrest in Jammu and Kashmir.
In its reply filed in response to the bail petition of Shabir Shah in a Delhi court, the ED reportedly said, “Shabir Shah was also involved in terror financing activities as terrorists need money to sustain themselves and to carry out acts.”
“Money-laundering is the method by which criminals disguise the illegal origins of their wealth and protect their asset bases, so as to avoid the suspicion of law enforcement agencies and prevent leaving a trail of incriminating evidence,” it added.

In its reply, the enforcement agency went on to say that Shabir Shah was in regular touch with Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed.
“He was involved in the generation of huge proceeds of crime from various countries including Pakistan to create unrest in Kashmir,” said the ED in a Delhi court opposing his bail plea.
