New Delhi [India], Dec 22 (ANI): The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday approached Delhi High Court against meat exporter Moin Qureshi's bail in a money laundering case.

The matter is likely to be heard on reopening of courts after winter vacation.

Moin Qureshi, who was arrested on August 25 after a case was filed against him last year under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act on the charges of illegal forex dealings and tax evasion, was granted bail by a Delhi Court on December 12.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court dismissed Qureshi's bail plea and said that there was no illegality in Qureshi's arrest.

While opposing Qureshi's plea, the ED and the Centre contested that "questioning of his arrest was an 'abuse' of the legal process" and told the court that there were serious charges of hawala transactions against him.

Qureshi is accused of hawala transactions through Delhi-based hawala operators Parvez Ali of Turkman Gate and M/s South Delhi Money Changer (DAMINI) in Greater Kailash-1. (ANI)
