In connection with alleged financial irregularities in the reconstruction of Goregaon's Patra Chawl, the central agency detained Raut on Sunday night.
On Thursday, Sanjay Raut, the head of the Shiv Sena, will appear before a special court after being detained by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money-laundering investigation. The court's Monday-granted ED custody of Raut expires on Thursday.
In connection with alleged financial irregularities in the reconstruction of Patra "Chawl" (old row tenement) in suburban Goregaon and linked financial property transactions involving his wife and accused friends, the central agency detained Raut on Sunday night.
On Monday, the ED brought Raut before Judge MG Deshpande of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court and asked for an eight-day remand. However, the court ordered that the Sena leader be held by the organization until August 4.
The 60-year-old Rajya Sabha member is a close aide of Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and the CBI had informed the court on Monday that Raut and his family received "proceeds of crime" worth more than Rs 1 crore produced out of suspected irregularities in the housing redevelopment project.
