Money Laundering Case: Supreme Court Refuses of Extend Bail Plea of Lawyer

The Supreme Court today refused to extend the interim bail petition of a controversial lawyer Rohit Tondon, who was arrested in connection with an alleged money laundering case post demonetisation.

The lawyer had sought extension of his interim bail expiring on September 6 on the ground that he has filed a plea for regular bail before the apex court to look after his ailing mother.

He was granted interim bail on August 10 by the high court from where he had withdrawn his plea for regular bail.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud rejected the bail petition of Tandon, who was arrested after a raid on his law firm in connection with a black money probe that had led to the alleged seizure of Rs 13.6 crore.

He was allegedly involved in illegal conversion of nearly 60 crore demonetised currency.

Earlier during the hearing, senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi seeking bail for Tandon, had said that the concept of bail is rule and jail is exception has been turned upside down in this case.

Advocate Rohatgi had argued that no case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) was made out against Tandon.

He said Tandon was allegedly found with unaccounted cash but that is not an offence under PMLA as the Act deals with proceeds of crime.
