Nawab Malik’s Bail Plea Rejected: On Wednesday (November 30), the PMLA court gave its verdict on the bail application of former Maharashtra minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik. The court has rejected the bail plea of Nawab Malik. The judge said in the order that the statement of Munira Plumber, the owner of Kurla’s Goawala Compound, is very important. The ED arrested Nawab Malik on February 23 this year on charges of money laundering. Since then he is in judicial custody.
Nawab Malik is in judicial custody, but due to ill health, he is currently undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Kurla, Mumbai. Where he has been admitted for a long time. Special Judge RN Rokade had on November 14 reserved his order on Malik’s bail plea after hearing lengthy arguments from both the sides.
Nawab Malik said this in the petition
The court had earlier said that it would pronounce its order on November 24. However, that day the court adjourned the matter till 30 November, saying that the order was not ready. Malik had filed a regular bail application before the special court in July. The NCP leader sought bail saying there was no ground to prosecute him for money laundering.
ED had opposed the bail
The investigating agency had opposed the bail on the basis of the case registered by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) against Dawood Ibrahim and his henchmen. The ED claimed that the accused was working with Dawood Ibrahim and his sister Haseena Parkar and there was no question of his innocence. The ED’s case against Nawab Malik is based on an FIR filed by the NIA against Dawood Ibrahim and his associates under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).
