The special PMLA court on Wednesday extended the judicial custody of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal and his nephew Sameer Bhujbal in the multi-crore Maharashtra Sadan scam, till June 7.
The Enforcement Directorate is probing Bhujbal, his son Pankaj and nephew Sameer in the case concerning a contract the former allegedly gave a builder in 2005 without inviting tenders when he was the state’s PWD minister.
Chhagan Bhujbal was arrested in the case in March under the provisions of the PMLA by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after the agency could establish the chain how the bogus deals and illicit funds funneled into the Bhujbal empire.
ED had filed two FIRs against Bhujbal and his family members under the anti-money laundering laws.
The special PMLA court had earlier issued a non-bailable warrant against Naik, who was the CA at Bhujbal- owned Mumbai Education Trust (MET) at Bandra.
