Shabir Shah admitted he had links with hawala operators in Pakistan who were laundering money to fund militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.

Shah, who had no regular source of income, was accepting donations in cash, but neither issued receipts nor filed tax returns for them.

The ED also discovered that the website IP address of Shah's Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party is registered in Peshawar.

SEPARATIST-PAKISTAN NEXUS

Earlier this year, an India Today expose, Hurriyat Truth Tapes, revealed how state and non-state actors in Pakistan, including Hafiz Saeed, were choreographing anarchy through their agents in the Kashmir Valley.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) then launched an investigation into the funding of Hurriyat Conference leaders, and made several arrests.
