The directorate of enforcement (ED), which is probing the multi-crore money laundering and tax evasion case, will get two more days to question the accused duo—Pune-based businessman Hasan Ali Khan and Kolkata-based businessman Kashinath Tapuriah.
The Special Prevention of Money Laundering Act court granted ED the permission to question Khan and Tapuriah on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Arthur Road Central Prison where they are lodged.
The ED sought to question Khan and Tapuriah claiming that some new facts have surfaced in the case.
Both are presently in judicial custody in the alleged scam and have also been questioned by the Worli police in an alleged fake passports case. Khan had obtained passports in 1998 that were allegedly made with the help of bogus documents acquired by Tapuriah. Khan allegedly possesses six passports from different parts of India.
