In a significant development, the Supreme Court has dismissed the plea of Tamil Nadu Minister V Senthil Balaji and his wife, affirming the legality of their arrest in a high-profile money laundering case. The apex court’s decision follows the judgment order of the Madras High Court, which upheld the legality of the arrest carried out by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Background and Context
The case revolves around allegations of money laundering against the TN Minister and his wife. The Madras High Court had previously ruled in favor of the ED, deeming their arrest in connection with the money laundering allegations to be legally sound. This decision has now been upheld by the Supreme Court, reinforcing the legal proceedings and actions taken by the authorities.
Custodial Interrogation Granted
As part of its ruling, the Supreme Court has also granted permission for the custodial interrogation of the accused by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). This development further underscores the seriousness of the allegations and the need for a thorough investigation into the matter.
