The remand of Jharkhand Rural Development Minister Alamgir Alam, arrested in the money tender scam has been extended for three more days on Monday, for the second time.

Mr. Alam, who was arrested by the Directorate of Enforcement on May 15 in a money laundering case, was produced in the Ranchi special PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act) Court on Monday after the completion of his extended five-day remand period.

He was initially remanded for six days following his arrest, which was extended for five more days by the special PMLA court on May 22.

. The ED had earlier arrested Mr. Alam’s Officer on Special Duty Sanjiv Kumar Lal and the latter’s domestic help after the seizure of more than ₹36 crores from a flat linked to them. According to the petition filed in the PMLA court, ED revealed that Mr. Alam used to get 1.5% commission of every tender in his department.
