The magisterial custody for Shiv Sena (Thackeray) leader, MP and senior journalist Sajay Raut was extended further by the PMLA Court. The next hearing on his bail application will be held on November 9.
Raut was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on July 31, in a money laundering case, concerning the Patra Chawl redevelopment case in Goregaon, Mumbai. His custody was extended on October 21 up to November 2.
Raut is charged with involvement in FSI fraud in the redevelopment work. The fraud is more than one thousand crore rupees. His wife Varsha is also under the scanner, as she could not provide a satisfactory answer to the transfer of Rs 50 lakhs in her account, about 12 years back.
