NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a prosecution complaint—equivalent to a charge sheet in police parlance—against two Hizbul Mujahideen operatives for money laundering in connection with a terror financing case related to Jammu and Kashmir.  “ED files prosecution complaint against Mubarak Ali & Inayatullah Wani associated with Hizb-ul-Mujahideen under PMLA in a terror funding case,” the agency tweeted on Thursday.

The two accused hailing from the Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir were earlier arrested by the State police for possessing Rs5.4 lakh in cash suspected to be illegal and intended to be delivered to an active HM terrorist, Ghulam Nabi alias Javed Qureshi.

The charge sheet was filed on Tuesday before a designated Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court in Jammu. The agency said both Ali and Wani were “over ground” workers of HM and were involved in a well-planned conspiracy to increase terrorist activities in Doda district by allegedly carrying the cash for Qureshi after receiving it from an “unknown” terrorist in Srinagar. In 2016, the ED had attached the seized cash

“During investigation, Ali took plea that the seized money was carried by him and his maternal cousin Wani for his (Ali’s) treatment of mouth cancer. The doctor who was treating Ali, stated he was not suffering from mouth cancer and the treatment given to him was free of charge,” the charge sheet noted.
