Separatist leader Shabir Ahmed Shah has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate for questioning in connection with a decade-old 'hawala case'.

Shah, the Chairman of Democratic Freedom Party of Jammu and Kashmir, has been summoned here for March 24, official sources said here.

The case relates to August 2005 of Delhi Police's Special Cell when they arrested Aslam, an alleged hawala dealer, who had claimed that he had passed on Rs 2.25 crore to Shah.

When contacted, Shah, who has denied these charges earlier, said that he was not aware of any summons. When pressed further, he said that he was in a meeting and he will talk tomorrow.

Aslam, who is at present out on a bail, has also been summoned by the ED, which registered a case under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against him.
