Alleged hawala dealer Mohammad Aslam Wani, arrested in a decade-old money laundering case also involving Kashmiri separatist Shabir Shah, was denied bail by a Delhi court which termed the alleged offence as “grave and serious”.

Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma yesterday dismissed the bail application of Wani, arrested on August 6 from Srinagar, and said that the trial is yet to start in the case and the stage is not fit for the grant of relief.

Enforcement Directorate (ED) had in September filed a charge sheet against Wani and Shah, whose bail application in the case was also dismissed on August 22.

Wani was arrested by the ED from Srinagar on August 6 with the help of the state police and is currently in judicial custody. Shah was arrested by the agency from Srinagar on July 26.

The ED action against the two was in pursuance of an August 2005 case in which the Delhi Police’s Special Cell had arrested Wani, who is alleged to have claimed he had passed on 2.25 crore rupees to Shah.
