A team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials is likely to bring back Anil Bastawade, accused of laundering ill-gotten money of former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda, from Indonesia on Tuesday.

Bastawade was detained on January 20 in Jakarta on the basis of an Interpol red corner notice issued at the request of the ED.

Bastawade was never chargesheeted by the ED in Madhu Koda scam. But the ED  summoned Bastawade after it got information that part of the ill-gotten money of Koda - Rs 250 crore - might have been invested in real estate in Dubai through him.

When Bastawade evaded summons, the ED approached court to issue a non-bailable warrant against him. So far Bastawade is not an accused of CBI but the agency will question him about the alleged money laundering in connection with Koda's funds.
