Ranchi: As former chief minister Madhu Koda
completed one year in judicial custody on Tuesday, his close aide
Binod Sinha`s judicial custody was extended till Friday by a
special Enforcement Directorate court.

The Prevention of Money Laundering Act court of G K
Singh, extended the judicial custody after Sinha appeared
before him during the day.
Sinha, who had evaded arrest till September 17 this
year after going in hiding ever since last year`s October 31
countrywide raids on the premises of Koda and his alleged
associates, has been in ED custody from 12 days earlier this
month.

Investigating agencies had alleged of recovering
documents that revealed over Rs 2000 crore scam of money
laundering and illegal investments.

Koda, who was arrested on November 30 last year and is
in judicial custody along with scam "kingpins" Manoj Punamia,
Arvind Vyas and Vikash Sinha, has obtained permission from a
court to attend the winter session of Lok Sabha.
He represents the House from Singhbhum.
