New Delhi, March 27 (IANS) The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday informed the Delhi High Court that it will file chargesheet against corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar before April 1 in a case related to irregular seat-sharing on Air India’s profitable routes.
A Division Bench, comprising Justices Hima Kohli and Vinod Goel, listed the matter for April 4.
The court, meanwhile, said it will not hear Talwar’s plea challenging certain sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act because the Supreme Court is hearing these issues.
The court, however, said it will continue hearing Talwar’s petition challenging his detention.
Talwar has been accused by the ED of acting as a middleman in negotiations to favour foreign private airlines in the matter of seat-sharing on Air India’s profitable routes.
The ED is also probing various other cases related to money laundering against Talwar, deported from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on January 30.
