The court in Tamil Nadu denies Senthil Balaji’s request for a 15-day hold

Senthil Balaji, a minister for Tamil Nadu, filed a plea before Chennai’s Principal Sessions Court asking for his 15-day remand to be refused.

The judge advised the petitioner’s attorney that “judicial custody has already been granted,” hence this was not genuine.

The Enforcement Directorate’s appeal for the minister’s custody was likewise denied by the court. Due to his improper cooperation during the initial interview, the ED had asked the court for permission to interrogate him while he was in detention. Judge S. Alli of the Principal Sessions ruled that the ED’s application could not be accepted.

The ED had informed the court in the plea seeking the minister’s detention that Senthil Balaji’s benami assets worth Rs 25 crore had been located. According to the organisation, the minister funded a home purchase made in a relative’s name.

A habeas corpus case submitted by Senthil Balaji’s wife will be reviewed by the Madras High Court. The appeal will be considered this afternoon by a division bench of the Madras High Court, comprised of Justices Nisha Banu and Bharat Chakravarthy.
