New Delhi [India], Jun 9 (ANI): Delhi's Patiala House Court on Saturday granted seven-day remand of journalist Upendra Rai to Enforcement Directorate(ED) in connection with a money laundering case.
The ED produced Rai in the court today seeking a 14-day remand. He was arrested yesterday once again under a money laundering case, soon after a Delhi court granted him bail in another case registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The economic intelligence agency has put Rai under arrest under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Yesterday, a special CBI court granted bail to Rai, accused of being involved in dubious financial transactions and holding an airport security pass.
Rai, whose name figures in two FIRs filed by the CBI, was arrested on May 3.
He was arrested for dubious financial transactions and gaining an airport security pass, issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), by furnishing false information.
The court granted him bail only after Rai submitted a bail bond and two surety bonds of Rs 5 lakh each. (ANI)
