New Delhi:

Hizbul Mujahideen chief Mohammad Yousuf Shah alias Syed Salahuddin, who was on Tuesday declared a 'Specially Designated Global Terrorist' by the United States, is wanted in over 50 terror cases in India, including Jammu and Kashmir, reports said on Wednesday. The cases include hawala funding, assasinations, abduction and attacks on security forces.

Investigating agencies have filed charge sheets in some cases, while probe is still on in few others. Since Salahuddin has been absconding, little headway has been made in these cases.

Director General of Police, SP Vaid said, "He is named in a number of FIRs." 

The 71-year-old politician-turned-terrorist leader is based in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) since 1993. He is also the head of the United Jihad Council, an umbrella group of over a dozen terrorist outfits based in PoK. In 2013, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) court had declared him as a proclaimed offender in a Rs 80 crore terror funding case. Also, an Interpol Red Notice is pending against Salahuddin.
