Court extends ED custody of CA in Rs 8,000-cr PMLA case

The agency sought ten days remand saying that the accused needed to be confronted with various documents and other "incriminating" materials recovered during the probe.
Agarwal was produced before the court after his three-day custody granted to the ED on May 23 ended on Friday.
The agency had claimed that more incriminating facts were likely to come out in this case, which allegedly involves two Delhi-based brothers and is linked with political entities.
