Hearing on Hasan Ali`s discharge plea deferred

Mumbai: A local court on Thursday adjourned to next week the hearing on an application filed by Pune-based businessman Hasan Ali Khan seeking discharge from the money laundering case.
In his application, made recently, he argued that there
was no offence made against him under the Prevention of Money
Laundering Act.

"Khan has filed a discharge application and we will file
reply in the court," said an Enforcement Directorate official,
adding a supplementary charge sheet in the case is likely to
be filed.

The Enforcement Directorate had alleged that Khan and
Kolkata-based businessman 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 a huge tax demand notice from the
Income Tax department.
