The ED, which recently filed its first charge sheet in a money laundering case in the Kashmir Valley, has alleged that Shah, chairman of Democratic Political Movement, received over Rs 3 crore between 2007 and 2010.

The money was received allegedly from ‘Madina Trading’ in Brescia, Italy, and the sender was said to be Javed Iqbal, a resident of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK).

The name of Madina Trading had cropped up during the investigation of 26/11 Mumbai attacks when it was found that a payment sent by Javed Iqbal was wired to Callphonex via Western Union Money Transfer.
