New Delhi: Delhi-based meat exporter Moin Qureshi, who was earlier on Saturday detained by immigration officials at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport in a money laundering case, managed to give the immigration authorities a slip and fly off to Dubai after showing a court’s order.
According to media reports, Moin Qureshi had apparently furnished a bond and said that he had the court’s permission to travel abroad. However, an inquiry has been ordered by the immigration authorities into this case.
Earlier, information had emerged that the meat exporter was detained and questioned by Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials based on the lookout circular issued against him in a case of money laundering, but now it seems that he has managed to fly out of country by producing a court order. Apparently this court order was in connection with an Income Tax case and not the ED case.
In 2005, Qureshi was booked in a money laundering case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). He was also under the scanner of probe agencies for alleged tax evasion and hawala-like dealings.
