ED chargesheet against meat exporter for money laundering

New Delhi, Oct 23 (IANS) The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday filed a chargesheet against meat exporter Moin Akhtar Qureshi in a money laundering case.

After the chargesheet was filed in the court of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj listed the matter for October 25.

The ED arrested Qureshi on August 25 after a case was filed against him last year under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act for alleged illegal forex dealings and tax evasion.

The ED alleged that its investigation had revealed acts of omission and commission on the part of certain public servants holding high offices in collusion with Qureshi, whereby massive illegal money transactions were carried out.

The agency said records from the Income Tax Department had revealed that Qureshi took huge money from different persons for obtaining “undue favours from public servants”. Qureshi has denied the charges.
