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.
