New Delhi, Oct 24: The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday filed a prosecution complaint against meat exporter and alleged hawala dealer Moin Akhtar Qureshi in an ongoing money laundering case. “The ED has filed prosecution complaint against Qureshi under the PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act). He is in judicial custody,” an ED official said. The ED’s move comes a day after it filed a chargesheet against Qureshi in the case in a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court here. Qureshi, arrested on August 25, was accused of dealing in ‘hawala’ money for government officials, including some CBI officers. The ED had said that during its probe, facts emerged on acts of omission and commission of certain public servants holding high positions in collusion with Qureshi. The agency said that records from the Income Tax Department revealed that Qureshi took a large amount of money from different people in lieu of “undue favours from public servants”. In order to secure security clearance, other public servants not connected with the case were influencing officers concerned to accord permission, the ED statement said. (IANS)
