A special PMLA court here on Tuesday sentenced Nagpur-based lawyer Satish Uke and his brother Pradeep to 14 days in judicial custody in a money laundering case.
The two were produced before special judge M G Deshpande on Tuesday at the end of their remand and were sent to jail custody, as the probe agency had requested no further remand.
On March 31, Advocate Satish Ukey and his brother Pradeep Ukey were taken in custody by the ED officials, in charges of illegally land grabbing. They were arrested after enquiry and search for about five hours under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Uke has filed several petitions in courts against BJP leaders, especially former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
The lawyer had sought criminal proceedings against Fadnavis for the non-disclosure of criminal cases in his election affidavit in one of his applications.
He had also petitioned the Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court seeking a police probe into the â€œsuspicious and untimelyâ€ death of CBI judge B H Loya.
Judge Loya, who was presiding over the trial in the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case, had died reportedly due to a heart attack in Nagpur in 2014.
Uke is also the lawyer for Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole, who has filed a Rs 500 crore defamation suit in a civil court here against IPS officer and former state intelligence chief Rashmi Shukla and others for alleged illegal tapping of his phone.
