New Delhi [India], May 15 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notice to lawyer-cum-businessman Gautam Khaitan on a plea by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) seeking cancellation of his bail in a money laundering case.

Justice Chander Shekhar asked Khaitan to file his reply and fixed July 18 as the next date of hearing.

The agency had on Tuesday approached the high court challenging the bail given to Khaitan by a special CBI court on April 16. He is also an accused in the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam case.

On March 25, the ED had filed a 1500-page charge sheet against Khaitan, alleging that he deposited a huge amount of money in offshore accounts. It has also accused him of not disclosing Rs 6,000 crore in his income tax return.

The charge sheet was filed under the Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets) and Imposition of Tax Act, 2015. (ANI)
