Ranchi: Enforcement Directorate on Saturday filed a chargesheet against businessman Anil Bastawade, an alleged aide of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda, accusing him of laundering Rs 4.93 crore.

The court of RK Choudhary took cognizance of the charge sheet. The ED informed the court that the amount it had filed in the chargesheet excluded Bastawade's alleged funds in five foreign countries where investigations were on.

A supplementary chargesheet would be filed as soon as the investigations were completed, ED counsel SR Das told the court. Bastawade was arrested and brought to Delhi from Jakarta on January 28 and produced before the PMLA court on January 30. He is in judicial custody now.

Koda is also in judicial custody from November 30, 2009 in several cases, including the money laundering case.
