Money Laundering Case: Uncle gets off; Sameer Bhujbal’s bail rejected

Bombay High Court has rejected the bail plea of Sameer Bhujbal in connection with the Money Laundering Case. Sameer Bhujbal is the nephew of the senior Nationalist Congress Party leader Chhagan Bhujbal


Bombay High Court on Thursday rejected the bail plea for Senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal’s nephew, Sameer Bhujbal. He was arrested in connection with the Money Laundering Case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). 

Sameer Bhujbal also applied for bail at the high court but it was rejected. However, the high court granted bail to his uncle and senior NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal, recently, in the same case.

Bhujbal spent two years in jail, in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan Scam and Money Laundering Case. However, his bail plea was accepted keeping in mind his age and his health which was not stable in the cell. Bhujbal was discharged from the hospital on Thursday – a week after he was granted bail by the Bombay High Court. 

Earlier in November 2017, Supreme Court removed Section 45 (1) of the Prevention of Money laundering Act (PMLA) which made Bhujbal eligible to apply for bail. 

Sameer Bhujbal also tried to walk on the similar line but the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) informed the high court that he has not put forth his side in the court over this case. The next hearing for this case will be on May 15.
