The sessions court on Wednesday granted permission to the Worli police to question Pune-based businessman Hasan Ali Khan for two days in connection with a case registered against him in 2008 for possession of multiple passports.
The police got the permission to question Khan on Thursday and Friday at Arthur Road Central Prison after filing an application for the same.
He was found in possession of three passports, two of which – one made in Mumbai and the other in Patna – were found to be fake. Khan is also facing criminal cases under the passport act for allegedly possessing six passports issued from different parts of India. Khan was again arrested on March 7 this year by the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) for allegedly stashing away billions of dollars in overseas bank accounts.
Khan’s advocate IP Bagaria said that Khan had appeared in person for the hearing of the application by the Worli police. “He appeared in person and did not object to the application,” said Bagaria.
The court is also likely to decide on the application filed by the ED seeking permission to question Khan for three days in connection with the case of alleged money laundering on June 17.
