New Delhi: Days after attaching assets allegedly linked to Shabir Shah, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is now preparing to initiate similar action against two more private persons who are associated with the Kashmiri separatist leader. The action is part of a multi-agency crackdown launched by the government against separatists.

“Two private persons are now under the scanner of the Central probe agency in connection with a 14-year-old terror funding and money laundering case against Mr Shah and others. It is suspected that the private persons allegedly assisted the separatist leader in committing the offence. Immediately after completing the probe, the agency sleuths may initiate proceedings to attach their properties,” sources said. The ED recently attached a Srinagar-located asset linked to Mr Shah. The attached property is located in Effandi Bagh in the Rawalpora area of Srinagar and the central agency issued the provisional order to attach the asset under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The ED had said “the asset is being held in the name of Mr Shah’s wife and daughters”. The seized asset is valued at Rs 25.8 lakh.
