Examining him in Hawala case: DCP
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Feb 21: Delhi Police Monday said it has asked Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani to indicate a "convenient" date and time when he could meet an officer “investigating the case of hawala transactions in which a close aide of his was arrested in December.”
Geelani has been asked not to leave Delhi till he has been examined in connection with the investigation of the case, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arun Kampani said. The 81-year-old Hurriyat leader had been asked via a letter on February 17 to meet the investigating officer regarding questioning of Hurriyat (G) activist Ghulam Muhammad Bhat.
During his police remand, Bhat had allegedly disclosed his association and financial dealings with the Hurriyat faction led by Geelani, the DCP said in a release.
Geelani had then expressed his inability due to medical reasons for the said meeting. In response to his reply another letter was sent asking him to indicate the date and time convenient as per his health condition to meet the Investigating Officer.
He was further asked not to leave Delhi till he has been examined in connection with the investigation of the case.
In December, the special cell had arrested four persons, including Bhatt, for alleged hawala transactions.
