Senthil Balaji's remand extended
Chennai | A sessions court on Monday extended Tamil Nadu Minister V Senthil Balaji's remand till November 22. He was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate earlier in connection with a money laundering case.
Principal Sessions Judge S Alli, before whom Balaji was produced through video-conferencing from the Puzhal Central Prison, extended his judicial custody till November 22.
When the case came up for hearing, advocate Arun, appearing for the DMK leader filed a petition, seeking a direction to the ED to furnish copies of documents which were seized by the prosecution during investigation.
