He is accused of moving ISI funds to Kashmir through his various businesses. He is also accused of being close to big-wigs in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

NIA sources said that his job was to move ISI funds into the Valley which he did through various channels both in Kashmir and abroad. He would work on a commission basis. For every successful remittance that he would make, he would earn a commission of 9 per cent, an NIA source informed.

    The money would be routed through hawala. He would often pick up the funds directly from the Pakistan High Commission and then remit it to the accounts of separatists.

    The remittances would run into several crores of rupees. It is hard to put a number for now said the NIA official while adding that the money has been moving freely from Pakistan into India for over 2 decades now.

    The NIA would also look to question some persons in the Pakistan High Commission over the issue. It has been found that most of the money would be picked up by middlemen such as Watali from the High Commission before it moved to the purses of the separatists.
