A Delhi court today extended by six days the ED custody of lawyer Gautam Khaitan, an accused in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam, in connection with a fresh case of alleged possession of black money and money laundering.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar again remanded Khaitan in the custody of Enforcement Directorate, which had arrested him on January 25  under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Khaitan is already being prosecuted in a case related to AgustaWestland in which he was granted bail.

The agency said that there was material evidence and reasons to believe that the accused has committed the offence of money laundering punishable under Section 4 of PMLA.

The ED said that Khaitan's custodial interrogation was required to identify all tainted money at the earliest.

The ED has said that it had the knowledge of Khaitan's unidentified assets which value more than Rs 500 crore. The Income Tax Department had earlier carried out searches against Khaitan in this new case filed under the anti-black money law.
