A Delhi Court on Friday sent corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar’s close aide Yasmeen Kapoor sent to judicial custody till November 1 in a money laundering case pertaining to negotiations that allegedly favoured foreign private airlines and caused loss to state-owned Air India.
Kapoor was produced before Special CBI Judge Anuradha Shukla Bhardwaj at the end of her ED remand period of 15 days.
Sending her to judicial custody, the court permitted Kapoor to carry her spectacles and prescribed medicines in the jail after an application for the same was moved by her counsels.
During the course of the hearing, Enforcement Directorate counsels Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) D.P. Singh and Manu Mishra moved an application praying for sending her to 14 days judicial custody. Kapoor’s counsel did not oppose the plea.
The ED had claimed that companies controlled by Talwar and his associates received huge sums from Qatar Airways, Emirates and Air Arabia and submitted a chart of a total of USD 60.54 million allegedly received from firms directly or indirectly owned by Talwar between April 23, 2008 and February 6, 2009.
