The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday filed a charge sheet against Maharashtra Minority Development Minister Nawab Malik in an alleged money laundering case involving fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim. Malik, a senior Nationalist Congress Party leader, was arrested in the case on February 23 and is currently in judicial custody.
ED̵7;s lawyers said over 5,000 pages of charge sheet was filed in the court’s registry. He said that the Special Court for Prevention of Money Laundering Act cases would take cognizance of the charge sheet after verification of documents. The ED’s case is based on an FIR registered recently by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) against Dawood Ibrahim and his associates under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).
