Aviation scam: Delhi Court extends custody of lobbyist Deepak Talwar’s aide

A Delhi court Wednesday extended by nine days the custodial interrogation of a close aide of corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar by the ED in a money-laundering case related to negotiations that allegedly favoured foreign private airlines and caused loss to state-owned Air India.

Kapoor was produced before Special Judge Anuradha Shukla Bhardwaj on the expiry of her 6-day ED custody and advocate Nitesh Rana, ED’s special public prosecutor, told the court that she was required to be quizzed further to unearth a larger conspiracy. The probe agency told the court that Kapoor was to be confronted with the documents and other co-accused in the case.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had taken Yasmin Kapoor into custody on October 3 after she was produced before the court. She was lodged in Tihar jail in another case being probed by the CBI. The court had last month cancelled the anticipatory bail granted to Kapoor in the money-laundering case after Rana submitted that she was misusing the bail.
