The Enforcement Directorate (ED) was on Friday granted the custody of a chartered accountant for two more days in a money laundering case allegedly linked to political entities. The court extended the custody of Rajesh Agarwal after he was produced by the ED. The agency sought three days remand saying that the accused needed to be confronted with various documents and other "incriminating" materials recovered during the probe.
According to ED officials, Agarwal is associated with some transactions involving a firm allegedly linked to Lalu Prasad's daughter Misa Bharti which is under scanner for suspected tax evasion.
