Mumbai, March 21: Special PMLA court on Monday extended the judicial custody of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP)leader Nawab Malik who was arrested in a money laundering case on February 23.
The court has also directed the authorities to provide Malik with a bed, mattress, and chair during his judicial custody. However, the court has kept his application for home food pending and will decide on this on the next date of hearing.
Malik, the chief of NCP’s Mumbai unit, is currently in judicial custody in connection with a money laundering case related to underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. He was arrested on February 23.
Last week, the Bombay High Court had denied any interim relief to Malik and refused to pass an order for his release from judicial custody.
