New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday granted three days of additional custodial interrogation to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) of Pune-based buisnessman Hasan Ali Khan allegedly involved in money laundering activities.

At an extraordinary hearing held at the residence of Justice Aftab Alam, the Apex Court extended Ali's custody with ED till March 25.

Justice R M Lodha also participated in the special hearing which was held at around 7.30 pm at the request of the ED as Ali's custody was coming to an end on March 22.

Santosh Paul, counsel for Hasan, said that the investigating authorities had been given three more days custody of the accused.

He said the ED had sought at least a week's custody, but the Special Bench had declined to entertain the request and granted only three more days.

The counsel said the ED also gave an undertaking that it would give necessary medical facilities to Khan suffering from certain medical problems and also keeps the court posted about the progress of his treatment.

Khan was taken into custody by ED on March 17 after the Supreme Court cancelled the bail granted to him by a trial court.
