New Delhi, August 23 : The judicial remand of separatist leader Shabir Shah on Wednesday was further extended till August 31.
Earlier on Tuesday, a Delhi Court dismissed the bail application of Shah.
He was arrested on charges of money laundering and was sent to a 14-day judicial remand earlier on August 9.
All seven separatist leaders – Altaf Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Mehraj Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Naeem Khan and Bitta Karate – were sent to 10-day NIA custody.
