The CBI in Goa has recorded the statement of Adani Enterprise Ltd (AEL) managing director Rajesh Adani, who was arrested for alleged customs duty evasion and later released on bail, his lawyers told the Gujarat High Court on Thursday.
The lawyers said he questioned again if required and requested the court to increase the relaxation given to the businessman to go out of Ahmedabad.
The court had last month granted Adani permission to go out of Ahmedabad from March 31 to April 4 for the purpose of appearing before Goa CBI.
Replying to the request, CBI advocate Y N Ravani sought time to get directions from the investigating officers in the case. The matter was adjourned till tomorrow.
Adani was arrested by CBI on February 27 for allegedly evading customs duty on petroleum products, causing a loss of Rs 1.07 crore to state exchequer.
He got bail on the very same day of his arrest, after his brother Vasant Adani filed a habeas corpus petition before the Gujarat Hight Court.
