A senior ED official said that the probe agency has already communicated with the Income tax department and sought financial records and investment details of Kashmir separatist leader. Sources also added that raids on locations and premises belonging to Shah are likely to place in order to recover incriminating documents if any.
The ED case against Shah goes back to 2005 the year in which one Aslam Wani was arrested by the special cell of Delhi Police. Delhi police had claimed that Wani was arrested along with Rs 63 lakh out of which Rs 50 lakh were to be delivered to Shah.
