New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has approached the Supreme Court seeking to cancel the bail granted to Bineesh Kodiyeri in drug money laundering case. The petition was filed in the Supreme Court by the ED Deputy Director, Bengaluru. The Enforcement Directorate has stated in its petition filed in the Supreme Court that there is clear evidence against Bineesh in the money laundering case.

Binesh was granted bail last year by the Karnataka High Court. The appeal was filed in the Supreme Court by lawyer Mukesh Kumar Marora seeking cancellation of this bail.

ED suspects that certain remarks made by the High Court while granting bail would influence the case. However, it took more than five months for ED to file a petition against the bail. It is learned that the petition was moved after consulting with the senior officials.

ED officials pointed out that Bineesh failed to provide details of his financial dealings. Further, the officials claimed that few of those who deposited money in accounts held by Bineesh never showed up for questioning.

Bineesh is the fourth accused in a case registered by ED. He was booked under Section 19A, 69 in the charge sheet. The charge sheet alleged that Bineesh laundered money to buy drugs and assisted the accused in the case.
