The special PMLA court on Thursday remanded businessman Suraj Chavan in judicial custody in connection with a money laundering case linked to the khichdi scam during the Covid-19 period.

Suraj Chavan was arrested on January 20, wherein the Enforcement Directorate (ED) claimed that he used his proximity with senior political leaders and managed to award the work order of khichdi to M/s Force One Multi Services by BMC authority.

The agency had said no role was played by Chavan in supplying packets of khichdi to BMC. However, it revealed that the illegal profit so generated by Force One was distributed to Suraj Chavan, showing him as an employee of the firm, and funds were transferred as a salary and in the form of a personal loan.
