HC denies bail to 2 accused in money laundering case involving AAP MLA

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has refused to grant bail to two persons arrested in a money laundering case related to alleged irregularities in Delhi Waqf Board recruitment, which also involves AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma dismissed bail pleas of accused Zeeshan Haider and Daud Nasir, saying there was sufficient material to attract the bar on grant of bail under the anti-money laundering law.

Both the accused were arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in November 2023.

“The material evidence gathered during the course of the investigation by the Directorate of Enforcement reveals that Amanatullah Khan had hatched a criminal conspiracy along with his close associates i.e., the present applicants/accused and others and pursuant to the same, he had invested his ill-gotten money i.e. proceeds of crime, in the immovable properties through his associates namely Zeeshan Haider, Daud Nasir and others,” the court stated.
