The ED has filed a charge sheet against two operatives of militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen on charges of money laundering and what it termed as "terrorist financing" in Jammu and Kashmir. 

Enforcement Directorate (ED) said in a statement said the duo, identified as Mubarak Ali and Inayatullah Wani, are residents of Doda district and were arrested by local police few years back in the state with Rs 5.4 lakh cash that was suspected to be illegal funds to be handed over to an active Hizb in Kashmir, Ghulam Nabi alias Javed Qureshi.

The charge sheet, the agency said, was filed on March 14 before a special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court in Jammu.

The agency said both Ali and Wani were "overground" workers of the "terror group" and were "involved and helping in a well-planned conspiracy to increase militant activities in the area of Doda district" by allegedly carrying the cash for Qureshi after receiving it from an "unknown terrorist in Srinagar".  PTI
