Money laundering case: NCP leader Nawab Malik’s bail plea rejected by special court in Mumbai | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: A special court on Wednesday rejected the plea for bail of the NCP leader and former Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik in a money laundering case. Malik has been in prison since his arrest in February of this year.

The Executive Board of Directors (ED) alleged that Malik had illegally occupied “Kurla General Store” in the Goawala building complex at Kurla West in 1996, and after becoming minister of state a few years later, he took over the entire facility with the help of Haseena Parklate sister of the gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
Stipulating the total proceeds of crime at Rs 16 crore, ED filed an indictment in the case.
Additional Attorney General (ASG) Anil Singh appeared at the ED arguing for quite a while and also denied Malik’s argument that his arrest was illegal. Malik said no previous offense had been registered against him under another Act and said no case had been brought against him under the PMLA. ASG said the ED has found documents and witness statements that indicate Malik allegedly participated in a conspiracy to appropriate property in the Goawala complex as well as money laundering.
