The Bombay High Court will continue to hear Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik's habeas corpus plea. Malik claims his arrest is illegal and has has sought immediate release.

The bench of Justices PB Varale and SM Modak had began hearing arguments in Nawab Malik's habeas corpus petition challenging his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate and seeking immediate release in the interim.

Senior Advocate Amit Desai appearing for Nawab Malik had completed his arguments.

Yesterday ASG Anil Singh argued that a habeas corpus plea is not maintainable in the present case. Moreover, rigours under PMLA for bail would apply even in the present scenario.

Today the Court shall hear Petitioners and ED's rejoinder arguments.

    Order on Tuesday.

    Arguments for interim relief in NawabMalik's habeas corpus petition are completed. 

  • 11 March 2022 6:21 AM GMT

    J Varale says that such arguments enrich even the court.

    Rise for a five minute break.

    ASG said the original def of Section 3 of PMLA includes "process" and "activity", which itself would consist of the petitioner's activities; therefore, the finance minister's speech would be clarificatory.

    ASG begins his rejoinder arguments. Says he will be brief.

    ASG- Proceeds of crime, knowledge and projection, all three ingredients are present in this case. The remand order is neither mechanical or illegal.

    Desai - The ECIR doesn't serve any purpose if it supposed to be kept sealed forever. A full blown argument is required on this. 

  • 11 March 2022 6:09 AM GMT

    Desai - Habeas corpus is the Brahmashirsha astra of the judiciary to protect personal liberty. It's the most powerful weapon. After 23, without even a semblance of an opportunity, he was picked up and charged under PMLA based on unreliable statements.

    Ipso facto possession of proceeds of the crime is not an offence, Desai says while citing section 5 of the PMLA. 

  • 11 March 2022 5:56 AM GMT

    Desai - The same wouldn't apply to money in the bank, jewelry, property. All these are properties of commerce then the principles of possession will be different.
