Court allows Moin Qureshi to travel to UAE, Pakistan

A Delhi court on Friday allowed controversial meat exporter Moin Akhtar Qureshi, accused in a money laundering case, to travel to the UAE and Pakistan noting there was no material to oppose his plea.

Special Judge Santosh Snehi Mann allowed Qureshi to travel to the UAE from February 15-23 for attending the Gulf Food Festival and from March 6-20 to Pakistan to attend his niece’s wedding.

The Enforcement Directorate and CBI opposed his plea.

The court said it was not disputed that accused has travelled abroad in the past on many occasions with the permission of the court and except for the “apprehension” of the ED and the CBI that Qureshi may not return to face the trial or join investigation, there is “no serious contest” to his applications.

The court directed Qureshi to furnish an additional security of ₹2 crore in the form of bank guarantee.
