The probe agency named her as an accused in its supplementary charge sheet filed in the case on Wednesday.

It alleged that Wani was asked by Shah to "work for him (on a commission basis) in collecting hawala money from Delhi and deliver to him at Srinagar." The case dates back to August 2005 in which Delhi Police's Special Cell had earlier arrested Wani. Wani had then claimed that he had given Rs 2.25 crore to Shah, following which the ED had registered a criminal case under PMLA against the two in 2007.
