Mint reported that a special court on Friday extended the Enforcement Directorate custody of Mr Sanjay Singal, former chairman and managing director of Bhushan Power and Steel Limited, by seven days in connection with its probe in a multi-crore money laundering case linked to an alleged bank loan fraud. Court order said "Extension of period of police custody remand is necessary for purpose of proper investigation and unearthing the conspiracy in the present matter. Accordingly considering the gravity of offence as well as totality of the facts and circumstances, the prayer for extension of seven days police custody remand of accused Sanjay Singal is allowed.”

Special Public Prosecutor Nitesh Rana appearing for ED had submitted that the accused needs to be confronted with further documents and to trace trail of money for probable diversion by unearthing routing of the proceeds of crime.

Mr Singal was arrested under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act on 22 November
