Enforcement Directorate, ED, has attached property worth over one crore rupees belonging to Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali in the ongoing investigations in the case against Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed. 

The agency initiated an investigation under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act based on the Charge Sheet filed by the National Investigation Agency against Hafiz  Saeed, Mohd. Yusuf Shah, Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali and others. 

In a statement, the agency said, accused Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali has been found to be involved in fund-raising and as a financial conduit for Hurriyat Leaders. 

NIA investigation also revealed that the All Party Hurriyat Conference and other secessionists instigate the general public, especially the youth, to observe strikes and issue directives to the masses to hold anti-India protests. 

The secessionists instigate the masses to resort to violence especially stone-pelting on the security forces at encounter sites and also after the dispersal of Friday prayers. 

During investigations, it was revealed that the Hurriyat leaders are receiving funds from Pakistan through conduits and also from the Pakistan High Commission directly. 

It was substantiated by incriminating document seized during the search from the house of Ghulam Mohd. Bhatt, who worked as the cashier-cum-accountant with Watali. 

The document shows that Watali was receiving money from Hafiz Saeed, ISI, Pakistan High Commission at New Delhi and also from a source based in Dubai. Watali along with other nine accused are under Judicial Custody at Tihar Jail in New Delhi.
