Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s judicial detention in the Patra Chawl land scam case was today extended by a special court in Mumbai until October 10.

A Special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court had earlier on September 19 extended the Shiv Sena MP’s judicial detention in the Patra Chawl land scam case by 14 days.

In connection with alleged financial irregularities in the reconstruction of the Patra Chawl in suburban Goregaon, Raut was detained by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on August 1.

Sanjay Raut was called into the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) offices on June 28 in connection with the investigation into the $1,034 million Patra Chawl land fraud.

The agency also called the Shiv Sena MP’s wife in connection with the Patra Chawl land matter back in August.

After the ED officers searched the Shiv Sena leader’s residence and detained and questioned him (Sanjay Raut) for a number of hours, they arrested him. The central agency then summoned the MP’s wife Varsha Raut.

Uddhav Thackeray’s former chief minister of Maharashtra has a good relationship with Raut.
