Mumbai: The special 'Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA)' court on Monday granted interim bail to the wife of Pune-based stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan, in connection with the proceedings under the act, and section 174 of IPC (Non-attendance in obedience to an order form public servant).

The proceeding were initiated against her by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for not replying to summons.

Rheema Khan's application seeking quashing of proceedings was rejected by the PMLA court on September 8, after which she applied for a bail.

"She had filed a bail plea in connection with the proceedings case, the court has granted her interim bail and directed us to file a reply," said an ED officer.

ED alleges that her husband Hasan Ali Khan and co-accused Kashinath Tapuriah laundered billions of dollars in foreign banks, of which a large chunk was obtained by Khan through the sale of weapons to international arms dealer, Adnan Khashoggi.

Khan is also facing the charge of stashing away billions of dollars in foreign banks.

Rheema herself has not been charged with any offence as yet, but ED has sought to question her.
