Money laundering case: Verma, wife sent to JC till Sept 10

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

ED sleuths produced Verma and his Romanian wife Anca Maria Neascu before the court after expiry of four days of police custody and the court remanded them in judicial custody till September 10 after the probe agency said that they were not required for further custodial interrogation.

"Both the accused are remanded in judicial custody till September 10," Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Gautam Manan said.

Verma and his wife were arrested on August 22 by the ED after they had moved an application to surrender in the case.

The ED had earlier told the court that the case is having "wide international ramifications" and the probe in the case registered under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) is going on.

ED had said that Verma and his wife were involved in the money laundering case of very high magnitude "running into crores of rupees".

During the hearing, ED's prosecutor Naveen Kumar Matta moved an application and said that both the accused should be remanded in judicial custody as they have interrogated them.

The ED had registered a money laundering case against the couple for allegedly receiving money from a Swiss defence firm to keep it out of the Indian government's blacklist.

Verma and his wife are also accused in two separate cases filed by the CBI, including a forgery case lodged on complaint of Union Sports Minister (More)
