Mumbai: A sessions court on Monday granted permission to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to question Kolkata-based businessman Kashinath Tapuriah, who is a co-accused in the money laundering case, for three days.

The ED today moved an application seeking questioning of Tapuriah for three days which the court granted.

The ED sources said Tapuriah would be questioned in connection with the alleged fake passport obtained by the Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan from the Patna Passport Office.

The agency had already obtained the similar permission to question Khan for his role in obtaining the fake passport.

Khan is facing charges of stashing away billions of dollars in the foreign banks with the help of his associate Tapuriah. The Income Tax department had already served a notice on Khan for allegedly evading tax to the tune of Rs 70,000 crore.

The sources, however, added that Khan and Tapuriah were not confronted with each other during the questioning of the former.

Meanwhile, the court on Wednesday is likely to hear the bail application, moved on Saturday, by Khan in conformity with the order by the Bombay High Court which asked him to seek relief from the lower court.
