The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday issued a show cause notice to Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, asking him to explain the source of $10,000 (Rs 6,46,605) "illegally" possessed by him in 2002. Since past year, sleuths tallied on dates on which money was withdrawn from these accounts with stone-pelting or road blockades incidents in Kashmir Valley and conducted probes with these account holders, people connected to them and bank officials to probe the source of funds. Nothing suspicious, sources said, has been found till date.

The probe being carried on since a year was based on an input provided by the Army that some bank accounts had transactions and withdrawals that coincided with stone pelting in the Valley, the report added. The government suspected that these funds were coming from across the border and were being transferred to stone-pelters through suspect bank accounts linked to separatists or terrorists. This account received Rs 18 lakh over a period of three months, and was closed within four months after the entire amount was withdrawn in various instalments.
