Terror-funding: ED moves court to quiz Geelanis son-in-law

New Delhi: The ED on Friday moved a Delhi court seeking its nod to quiz separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani's son-in-law Altaf Shah in connection with a terror-funding case involving LeT chief and 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

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 terror-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.
