MUMBAI: A Special Anti-Corruption Bureau Court on Wednesday granted bail to former Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal and his nephew Sameer Bhujbal in various land scam cases.

However, the two will remain in judicial custody in connection with a multi-crore money laundering case filed against them by the Enforcement Directorate.

NCP leader Bhujbal was arrested on March 14 and ex-MP Sameer was nabbed on February 1 for their involvement in scams involving the Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi and at Kalina in Mumbai.

Bhujbal's son and Nationalist Congress Party legislator Pankaj Bhujbal has been summoned by the ED, which earlier issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against him.

In March, the ED attached a sugar mill and 290 acres of land in Nashik worth around Rs.55 crore in connection with the money laundering cases filed against the Bhujbals and others.
