NEW DELHI: A Delhi court will pronounce next week its order on whether to allow Enforcement Directorate to quiz a UAE-based businessman, arrested by the NIA and currently in judicial custody, in a terror-funding case also involving Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
District Judge Poonam A Bamba reserved order on ED’s plea to quiz businessmen Naval Kishore Kapoor for September 11.
During a brief hearing Thursday, ED’s special public prosecutor Nitesh Rana told the court that Kapoor was required for interrogation and recording of his statement in a money laundering case, being probed by ED in connection with the present matter.
The NIA arrested Kapoor on July 26 and he is presently lodged in Tihar central jail.
The ED had interrogated a Kashmiri businessman Zahoor Watali, a co-accused in the case, during an investigation in the matter under the provisions of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) for allegedly receiving funds from abroad. (AGENCIES)
