Judicial custody of Bhujbal, nephew extended till April 13

The special court for Prevention of Money Laundering Act cases on Thursday extended the judicial custody of nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal and his nephew and former MP Samir till April 13.

The duo appeared before the special judge PR Bhavke via a video link from the Arthur Road jail here. Chhagan Bhujbal later moved an application seeking home food, medication and bed. The plea may be heard on April 4.

He also moved an application seeking to reject a bail plea filed by a city-based lawyer without any authorisation from Bhujbal.

Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has told the court it has attached properties of Bhujbals worth Rs 131.86 crore, while remaining properties worth Rs 708.30 crore were yet to be identified and attached.

On Wednesday, the ED had filed an 11,500-page charge-sheet which names Chhagan Bhujbal, his son Pankaj, nephew Samir, corporates like DB Realty, Balwa group of companies, etc.
