The agency on Wednesday told Special Judge Arvind Kumar that Mr. Puri was non-cooperative and untraceable

The Enforcement Directorate moved a Delhi court on Wednesday seeking issuance of non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Ratul Puri, nephew of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, in connection with a money laundering case related to the AgustaWestland chopper scam.

The move comes a day after the court dismissed his anticipatory bail plea in the now scrapped ₹ 3,600 crore VVIP chopper deal with AgustaWestland.

The agency on Wednesday told Special Judge Arvind Kumar that Mr. Puri was non-cooperative and untraceable. The court is likely to take up the application for hearing tomorrow.

In its application, the agency said that Mr. Puri was directed to join the investigation on Tuesday but he failed to turn up before the agency.
