No Court Relief to Chagan Bhujbal CA

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a┬áSpecial Prevention of Money Laundering Act Court on Tuesday refused to grant interim relief to Shyam Malpani – chartered accountant for Mumbai Educational Trust headed by former Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal, who is facing charges under PMLA and is behind bars since March 14.

Judge PR Bhavake, after hearing the application filed by Malpani, issued notice to Enforcement Directorate authorities to make their arguments on Malpani’s application and posted the matter for May 12. Malpani is one of the over 25 people against whom the ED Court had issued non-bailable warrants close to two weeks back.

Malpani’s application, filed through advocate Nithianandan Balagopalan, says that he hasn’t been provided with a copy of the voluminous charge sheet filed against Bhujbal, and that he came to know of his alleged involvement in the case only through media reports.
