Shah was arrested on July 25, 2017, on charge of money laundering in the case dating back to 2005 when the Delhi Police Special Cell arrested Wani. In the 2005 case lodged by the Special Cell, the court had acquitted co-accused Wani of the charges of crimil conspiracy and other offences but convicted him under the Arms Act.
