Hyderabad: A local court on Tuesday dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Pune-based businessman Hasan Ali Khan as police are seeking to question him for allegedly procuring a fake passport from the city.

The court upheld the contention of Additional Public Prosecutor S Lokeswar Reddy that charges under IPC sections related to cheating and other crimes were maintainable against Khan, and that he had been evading the police.

Ali, facing charges of money laundering and tax evasion in a case filed by Enforcement Directorate in Mumbai, is also accused of obtaining five passports from various parts of India, including Hyderabad. He is currently lodged in a prison in Mumbai.

He filed the anticipatory bail plea here, saying that he had obtained the passport from Hyderabad after submitting valid documents.

Hyderabad Police Commissioner AK Khan had earlier said that city police wanted to interrogate Ali.
