New Delhi, March 17 (IANS) The Supreme Court Thursday stayed a Mumbai court’s order granting bail to Pune stud farm owner, Hasan Ali Khan, alleged to be the country’s biggest tax-evader, and granted his immediate custody to the Enforcement Directorate for four days.
An apex court bench of Justice B. Sudarshan Reddy and Justice S.S. Nijjar
said it was doing so in the face of extraordinary situations and the complexity of the situations involved in the money laundering cases against Khan the ED is probing.
The court also expressed its bewilderment over the detailed order of Mumbai’s principal sessions judge M.L. Tahilyani refusing the ED custodial interrogation of Khan and granting him bail.
