New Delhi:  The Enforcement Directorate Tuesday filed a charge-sheet before Delhi court against Pakistan-based Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin and 11 others for allegedly laundering money for financing militant activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

The prosecution complaint, ED’s equivalent to charge-sheet, has urged the court for confiscating attached assets totalling to Rs 1.22 crores in the case, besides other punishment under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The matter is likely to be taken up by the court soon.

The central probe agency had filed a criminal case of money laundering in this instance after taking cognisance of a National Investigating Agency (NIA) charge-sheet filed against Salahuddin and others under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Action (UAPA) and other sections of the Indian Penal Code.
