Maharashtra Minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik were sent to judicial custody till 21 March today by a special PMLA court in Mumbai. He was arrested by ED on 23rd February in connection with Dawood Ibrahim’s money laundering case.
First, he was taken to the JJ hospital for a medical checkup. The NCP leader was produced before special judge EN Rokade at the end of ED remand on Monday.
The court then sent him to judicial custody as no further remand was sought by the probe agency.
Earlier, the Special PMLA court extended the Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody of Maharashtra minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik till March 7 in connection to the same case.
Defence lawyer Amit Desai hitting out at the ED, argued in the court that the agency has said today that the “terror funding” by the Minister to Haseena Parkar was ₹5 lakh as against ₹55 lakh in the first application, which was due to a “typing error”.
“On the front page of today’s remand application, it is written that it is a continuation of the previous remand application. The last time the ED told the court that there was a connection between Nawab Malik and the underworld gang. It was said that he had an active involvement in terror funding,” he said.
