Meat exporter Moin Qureshi briefly detained at Delhi airport

New Delhi: Meat exporter Moin Qureshi, whose business dealings are under the scanner of the Income-Tax Department and the Enforcement Directorate, was detained at Indira Gandhi International airport here on Friday night, on the basis of a lookout circular issued by the ED.
However, Mr. Qureshi was later allowed to board a flight to Dubai after brief questioning, during which he showed to the immigration officials court documents granting him permission to visit abroad after he furnished a bond. The ED had earlier summoned the businessman for questioning in connection with a case registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act last year.
The agency initially launched a probe against Mr. Qureshi for suspected violations under the Foreign Exchange Management Act. However, following preliminary investigations, the money laundering case was registered.
The ED launched money-laundering probe on the basis of a charge sheet filed against Mr. Qureshi in an alleged tax evasion case. Searches were also conducted at his residence.
