Special Judge Arvind Kumar asked the businessman to furnish two sureties bond of Rs 5 lakh each and also sought a detailed medical report of Saxena from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
Saxena told the court he was suffering from radiating back pain, numbness and heaviness in legs, neck pain and other ailments. Despite this, he has been cooperating, he said.
According to the ED, in connivance with lawyer Gautam Khaitan, Saxena provided a corporate structure across the globe to launder money for payment to various political leaders, bureaucrats and Indian Air Force officials to influence the contract for supplying 12 VVIP helicopters in favour of AgustaWestland.
A non-bailable warrant was issued against Saxena after he did not join the investigation despite repeated summons.
Saxena's name was mentioned in a charge sheet filed against his wife, Shivani, who has been out on bail after being arrested by the ED earlier.
