The court has asked the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to file its response on Khaitan's application and said that it will hear the bail plea on February 15.
The ED said that Khaitan was "controlling" the modus operandi and was responsible for routing money, misusing his connections and clients, including the ones inherited from his father, to launder money through a variety of accounts in Dubai, Mauritius, Singapore, Tunisia, Switzerland, the UK and India.
Agency officials said the accounts included those belonging to his undisclosed shell companies outside India.
Khaitan was arrested in September 2014 for his alleged involvement in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal.
He got bail in January 2015 and was again arrested along with Sanjeev Tyagi, another accused in the case, on December 9, 2016, by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). He later secured bail.
The CBI charge sheet had described Khaitan as the brain behind the AgustaWestland deal.
