In connection with the Delhi excise policy case, the Rouse Avenue Court on Tuesday remanded liquor businessman Amandeep Dhal to Judicial Detention until March 21. After his remand period expired, he was produced in court by the Enforcement Directorate.
Tanveer Ahmad Mir, representing Amandeep Singh Dhall, requested that he not be held in the same jail as other defendants in the same case. He stated that threat perception exists. My client should not be harmed while in your honour’s custody, the lawyer stated.
MK Nagpal, the Special Judge, instructed that he (Amandeep Singh Dhall) be housed in another jail as per the terms of the jail manual, and that if this is not practicable, that all necessary measures be made to keep him secure.
The Enforcement Directorate has detained Amandeep Dhall in connection with an ongoing money laundering probe into the Delhi excise policy.
According to the ED, Aman Dhall colluded with others and is actively involved in policy creation and facilitating kickbacks to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its recoupment by the South Group via various means. Proceeds of crime (POC) to the tune of at least Rs. 7.68 crores have been generated as a result of such crimes, and Aman Dhall has had a role in the generation, transfer, and concealment of the proceeds of crime, projecting the same as untainted.
According to the findings of the inquiry, Amandeep Singh Dhall is involved in activities related to the acquisition, possession, and use of criminal proceeds.
