The charges put the role of Kashmiri separatists in the unrest under the scanner as Shah is the chief of Democratic Political Movement and member of Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s hardline Hurriyat Conference.
Shah and Khan have been charged with money laundering, raising finance for terror activities, holding proceeds of terrorism, waging and attempting war against India.
