Court allows ED to quiz Deepak Talwar in jail

NEW DELHI

A Delhi court on Friday allowed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to question corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar in judicial custody in a case related to the purchase of 43 aircraft by Indian Airlines in 2005.

ED’s Special Public Prosecutors D.P. Singh and Nitesh Rana told Special Judge Santosh Snehi Mann that the interrogation of Talwar is necessary to ascertain the money trail.

ED has registered a case related to purchase of aircraft by Indian Airlines from Airbus Industrie, France, in 2005.

Meanwhile, the prosecutors have withdrawn the plea seeking to issue a production warrant against Talwar, who is in judicial custody in another money laundering case related to his suspected role in the irregular seat sharing on Air India’s profitable routes with some international airlines. IANS

The ED is also probing various other cases related to money laundering against Talwar who was deported from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on January 30.
