The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani to appear before it on December 18 for adjudication proceedings related to a foreign exchange violation case involving USD 10,000 “illegally” possessed by him in 2002.

The foreign currency was seized during an Income Tax raid at his residence in Srinagar’s Hyderpora area in 2002.

The central probe agency, early this year, issued a notice under various sections of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) to the 87-year-old separatist leader based in Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir.
