A man accused of routing money for militant activities through hawala channels has been arrested in a joint operation by Delhi Police and Jammu and Kashmir police, reported NDTV.

According to HGS Dhaliwal, Special Commissioner of Police of the Delhi Police Special Cell, the man routed money to militant organisations Lashkar-e-Taiba and Al-Badr.

According to police, this money sent through hawala channels was used for militant activities in Kashmir.

The accused, Mohammed Yasin, had been living in Delhi’s Turkman Gate area and has a garment business. Police said he had sent about 10 lakh rupees to a militant operative in Kashmir, identified as Abdul Hamid Mir, last week.

Jammu and Kashmir police registered a case in this connection and arrested Mir. Following his questioning, Yasin was tracked down and arrested. Cash worth 7 lakh rupees and a mobile phone were recovered from him, police said.

According to police, Yasin worked as a hawala money channel. He would get funding from his contacts abroad and then route these funds to militant organisations operating in Jammu and Kashmir, reads the report.

During questioning, he said hawala cash is being routed from South Africa to Gujarat’s Surat and Mumbai, according to police. Police said Yasin was a key link in this hawala syndicate.
