The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a money laundering case against businessman Navneet Kalra, an accused in the hoarding and black-marketing of oxygen concentrators case.
The Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) was registered on the basis of the FIR lodged by the Delhi Police Crime Branch, said the ED.
Kalra will be produced today before the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate, Saket, after the expiry of his three-day police remand.
He was sent to police custody on May 17, after the Crime Branch of Delhi Police arrested him on May 16.
Delhi Police had registered an FIR against Kalra under the Essential Commodities Act and various other Sections, including 420/188/120B and 34 of the Indian Penal Code for black-marketing and hoarding of Oxygen Concentrator, Oximeters, N95 marks and other Equipment.
On May 18, Senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa had filed a regular bail for Kalra, as his anticipatory bail application had become infructuous after Kalra’s arrest on May 16.
