Continuing the crackdown against terror funding, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached property worth Rs 6.19 crore belonging to a Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali, reports Mint.
Watali is booked under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) as part of ongoing investigations into terror financing against Lashkar-e-Taiba chief, Hafiz Saeed.
The accused is alleged to have arranged financial support to the terror outfit, as per a charge sheet filed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
