J&K: ED files chargesheet in relation to terror funding

The Enforcement Directorate has filed a prosecution complaint – equivalent of a chargesheet – in relation to terror funding of militant group Al-Badr, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

Al-Badr is an Islamic militant group operating in the Jammu & Kashmir, run by Jasniel Rihal. The group was allegedly formed by the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in June 1998. It is believed the group was encouraged by the ISI to operate independently from their previous umbrella group, Hizb-ul-Mujahideen.
