Hasan Ali aide remanded in ED custody

The special judge under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) here on Thursday remanded Kashinath Tapuriah (74), a close aide of Pune-based businessman Hasan Ali Khan, in Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till March 30.

Mr. Tapuriah was arrested at 2.30 a.m. on Thursday here after being questioned by the ED for “actively assisting Hasan Ali Khan in his money laundering activities.”

Ujjwal Nikam, appearing for the ED, requested 10-day custody for Mr. Tapuriah because both Mr. Khan and Mr. Tapuriah “conspired together to do certain illegal acts for committing offences under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.”

“A criminal conspiracy was hatched by both of them. This case will have international ramifications,” he said, adding that the ED needed his custody to interrogate the links with international arms dealer Adnan Khasshoggi. “This is a matter having bearing on the national security as well.”
