A Delhi Court Tuesday granted bail to controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi in a money laundering case. Special judge Arun Bharadwaj gave him the relief on a personal bond of two lakh rupees and a surety of a like amount.
The court had reserved its verdict on December 4, after the Enforcement Directorate opposed the bail plea of Qureshi, saying he could hamper the ongoing investigation. ED special counsel N K Matta had alleged that allegations levelled against Qureshi were grave and there were chances that he may flee from justice if enlarged on bail.
The accused had told the court in his bail plea that the probe in the case was over and he was not required further by the ED. Qureshi was arrested under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) on 25 August this year and sent to ED custody by the trial court the next day.
