Supreme Court Refuses Nawab Mallik’s Bail Plea in Money laundering Case


The Supreme Court refused bail to Nawab Malik, a Maharashtra minister and NCP leader, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002. (PMLA). Malik has been summoned before the trial court to enter a not guilty plea to the charges that have been levelled against him.

Senior lawyer Kapil Sibal questioned Nawab Malik’s arrest in February 2022 for an alleged crime committed on his client’s behalf in 1999. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) detained NCP leader and Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik on February 23 after interviewing him in connection with a money laundering case linked to Dawood Ibrahim and the mafia.

Justice DY Chadrachud stated in dismissing the bail application: “This is the very beginning of the procedure. It would be irresponsible of us to become involved. You can file a bail application with the proper court.”

Previously The ED learned of a 2.75-acre site in Kurla, popularly known as Goawala compound, that Malik purchased from Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar and 1993 serial blasts suspect Sardar Shahwali Khan during the investigation. Malik’s payment was allegedly used to sponsor terrorism. The transaction took place between 2003 and 2005, and Malik is said to have placed a large number of renters on the property.

Malik and the enterprises owned by him and his family members collected Rs. 11.70 crore in rent from two firms administered by the maharashtra minister. They’ve also been dubbed “proceeds of crime” by the FBI.

As a result, the supreme court has refused to grant Nawab Mallik bail.
