MUMBAI: The Special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court on Thursday sent Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal to judicial custody till March 31.

The former Maharashtra deputy chief minister was arrested on March 14 in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam.

Earlier, the Maharashtra ACB filed a chargesheet in the Mumbai Sessions Court against Bhujbal and his family members in connection with the scam.

The Enforcement Directorate had on February 1 arrested former lawmaker Sameer Bhujbal, nephew of Chhagan Bhujbal, in a money laundering case in Mumbai after the agency conducted multiple searches in connection with the probe against Bhujbals and others.

The Maharashtra ACB had earlier filed two FIRs against the Bhujbals and others under the provisions of the PMLA to probe the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.
