Maharashtra: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut remanded to ED custody till Aug 4

Mumbai: A special PMLA court in Mumbai on Monday remanded Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till August 4 in a money laundering case.

The case pertains to alleged irregularities in redevelopment of a Mumbai 'chawl'.

The ED on Sunday evening arrested Sanjay Raut in connection with a land scam case, media reports said.

Raut, who is close to former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, was arrested hours after the probe agency conducted raids in his residence.

The ED has recovered Rs. 11.5 lakh from Raut's residence.

Raut, whose Sena is a friend-turned foe of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was being quizzed in connection with the scam case related to the alleged irregularities in the re-development of a Mumbai 'chawl' and the transactions linked to it.

This comes days after West Bengal politics was rocked by the ED's arrest of erstwhile state minister and top Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Partha Chatterjee in connection with the teacher recruitment scam.

The ED had recovered a huge cash amounting to Rs. 50 crore from Chatterjee's aide and small time actor Arpita Mukherjee's two flats.
