Money laundering case: Chhagan Bhujbal files appeal on letting him travel outside state

Mumbai: The former deputy chief minister Chaggan Bhujbal through his counsel, on Friday, submitted an application in the Preventive Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court, in the Special Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Case, to modify his bail application. Through this application, he requested he be allowed travel outside Maharashtra, as he was restricted by the order. On June 22, 2016, Bhujbal who is an accused in the Maharashtra Sadan and Mumbai University library scams, had sought bail on medical grounds, according to his counsel Shalabh Saxena, “At that time he was already arrested in the PMLA case, it was of no consequence. Therefore, we never moved any relaxation in our bail application then. Now that the PMLA court granted him bail, we decided to move an application,” added Saxena.
