New Delhi [India], December 1 (ANI): A Delhi Court on Friday reserved the order for December 4 on bail plea of alleged hawala dealer Mohd Aslam Wani in connection with a decade-old money laundering case for alleged terror funding.

On November 27, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought more time to file its reply on the bail plea of Mohammad Aslam Wani.

Wani is a close aide of Kashmiri separatist Shabir Shah, who has been arrested in terror funding cases.

Earlier, Wani moved the Patiala House Court after the apex court set aside all orders by which bail to an accused was denied due to stringent bail condition in money laundering cases and directed that such cases be remanded back to the respective courts to be heard on merits.

Wani was arrested on August 6.

The ED had, on September 23, told the court that Shah admitted to receiving funds from Pakistan's terror outfits to spread terror in Jammu and Kashmir and others parts of the country.

The chargesheet filed by the ED stated that the separatist had admitted of talking to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed on phone on the issue of Kashmir and had last spoke to him in January this year. (ANI)
