ED opposes bail for money-laundering accused


New Delhi, Nov 29: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday opposed the bail plea of meat exporter and alleged hawala dealer Moin Akhtar Qureshi, arrested in a money laundering case.

ED told the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj that the allegations against Qureshi are serious in nature and if released on bail, he might tamper with evidence in the case.

The court has listed the matter for further hearing on November 30.

Qureshi was arrested on August 25 after a case was filed against him last year under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act on charges of illegal forex dealings and tax evasion.
