New Delhi: The Home Ministry on Wednesday directed a high-level probe into the case of Delhi-based meat exporter Moin Qureshi, who had managed to give the immigration authorities a slip and flown off to Dubai a few days ago.
An inquiry was ordered the day when Qureshi 'tricked' the immigration authorities and flew off to Dubai as the agency was found wanting. 
However, now the Home Ministry wants the responsibility to be fixed. The responsibility about why the lapse took place despite regular lookout circulars being issued against the individual (Moin Qureshi) and still he being allowed to get away on the basis of an irrelevant court order.
Moin Qureshi, was on Saturday first 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. 
Qureshi had been earlier 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.
