New Delhi: A special PMLA court on Monday extended the judicial custody of Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut by 14 days in connection with the Patra Chawl land scam case.

The court will now hear his bail plea on 21 September.

As per the court’s directive, the ED officials handed over the copy of charge sheet to Raut.

Raut was arrested by the ED on 1 August in connection with alleged financial irregularities in the redevelopment project of Patra Chawl. Initially, after being in the ED’s custody, he was sent to judicial custody for 14 days, which was extended twice.

ED officials raided Raut’s residence in Mumbai on 31 July and, after questioning him for several hours, arrested him on 1 August.

The case concerns the redevelopment of the project for 672 tenants taken up by a firm Guru Ashish Constructions Pvt. Ltd, where Pravin Raut, a close associate of Sanjay Raut was one of the directors.

The ED alleged that Pravin Raut made Rs 112 crore from the project and diverted some amount to Sanjay Raut and his wife.
