RANCHI - A Ranchi court Friday sent Vinod Sinha, a close aide of jailed former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda, to 12 days of Enforcement Directorate (ED) remand.
The Enforcement Directorate had moved a petition in the Prevention of Money laundering Act (PMLA) court of G.K. Singh, seeking 14 days of remand for Vindo Sinha. He is accused of investing money in foreign countries through hawala transactions and other sources.
The Enforcement Directorate team will take Sinha to New Delhi and other places of the country for investigation.
The Central Bureau of Investigation Nov 12 filed an interim charge sheet against Madhu Koda, Vinod Sinha and Sanjay Chaudhary. Both Koda and Sinha are in jail, while Chaudhary is on the run.
The charge sheet says the trio accepted bribe of Rs.13 crore while allotting iron-ore mines lease during the Koda regime.
