NEW DELHI: A Delhi court today allowed the Enforcement Directorate to quiz an UAE-based businessman arrested by the NIA in a terror-funding case involving Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
District Judge Poonam A Bamba granted two days to the ED to quiz businessman Naval Kishore Kapoor, who is currently lodged at the Tihar Central Jail.
The court took note of the submissions made by the ED’s special public prosecutor, Nitesh Rana, that Kapoor was required for interrogation and recording of his statement in a money laundering case, which is being probed by the agency in connection with the terror-funding matter.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had interrogated a Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Watali, a co-accused in the terror-funding case, during an investigation into the matter under provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) for allegedly receiving funds from abroad. (AGENCIES)
