Ratul Puri sent to 6 days' ED custody

New Delhi, Aug 20 (IANS): A Delhi court on Tuesday sent businessman Ratul Puri to a six-day custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a Rs 354 crore bank fraud case.

Special CBI judge Sanjay Garg pronounced the order.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi High Court had dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Puri in the AgustaWestland case.

The ED early on Tuesday had arrested Puri, nephew of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and a former Executive Director of Moser Baer, in connection with a Rs 354 crore bank fraud case filed by the Central Bank of India.

The agency took the action after filing a money laundering case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Puri and others late on Monday night based on the Central Bureau of Investigation's FIR.

The CBI had booked Ratul Puri, his company, his father and Managing Director Deepak Puri, Directors Nita Puri (Ratul's mother and Kamal Nath's sister), Sanjay Jain and Vineet Sharma for alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and corruption.

The ED also wants to question Ratul Puri in the Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal.

    When Rafael investigation and court case was initiated BJP put all sorts of hurdles and tried to sabotage the case. Now BJP has Christien Michel in custody for long time and now Ratul Puri. So why this double standard by BJP and NIA, ED, court and investigating agencies working delegently while in Rafael case all these agencies were giving cold shoulder. After all BJP money and muscle power is supreme and above law. This definitely doesn't make Modi guilt free as the PM and head of the govt.

    What happened to the Vyapam case against Shiv Raj Singh Chauhan? No one speaks about it. There seem to have two sets of rules in this country. One for ruling party and its leaders - they are never corrupt. Second for opposition parties and their leaders - they are the cause of all corruptions in this country ? This is a concluded position.
