Mumbai: Pune-based stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan, accused of money laundering and tax evasion, has filed a fresh bail application before the special Prevention of Money Laundering Act court here.

Khan has said in the application that he is filing a fresh plea (as the court had earlier refused to grant him bail) because of changed circumstances.

Of the three cases, which were cited by the police while invoking PMLA against him, no evidence has been found in the Hyderabad case, where he is alleged to have facilitated sale of Nizam family's diamonds, the application says.

The other two cases, under the Passport Act, were registered when PMLA was not in force, it adds.

The court is likely to hear the application tomorrow.

Khan has spent about 11 months in the jail after the arrest for allegedly stashing away billions of dollars in foreign bank accounts, as per the case of Enforcement Directorate.
