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).

It is also found that the Hurriyat Gonference, along with other separatists, instigated the youth of the valley into anti-India activities - demonstrations through press conferences, social media, holding strikes, stone pelting towards the armed forces, etc.

The ED is also initiating an investigation based on a charge sheet filed by the NIA against Hafiz Saeed under the Prevention of Unlawful Activities Act (UAPA), 1967.
