Hasan Ali's judicial custody extended till June 2

"Principal Sessions Judge Sapna Joshi extended his custody till June 2 and the bail plea hearing was adjourned till June 7 due to the absence of the public prosecutor," Khan’s lawyer I.P. Bagaria told IANS.

The bail plea hearing of Kashinath Tapuriah, Khan’s business associate, has also been adjourned till June 7.

Khan was taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) March 17 after the Supreme Court cancelled his bail given by a trial court.

On March 21, the apex court had ordered his custody to the ED for an additional three days.

Among other things, Khan is suspected to have stashed away around $8 billion in Swiss bank accounts, transferring cash and assets out of the country through dubious means and evading taxes on income with a suspected liability of over Rs.40,000 crore.
