A Single Bench of Justice Manmohan Singh issued a stern warning to the Enforcement Directorate whilst stating that the ED cannot act as a “super investigator” and not share records with the court. The Bench was hearing a batch of cases filed by Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and others in an ongoing money laundering case.
In his plea, Singh has sought the reasons based on which a search and seizure was carried out by the ED pertaining to investigations under the money laundering case. He has also sought quashing of the April 19 order of the adjudicating authority and the May 12 decision of the appellate tribunal, both of which dismissed his pleas to provide the reasons behind search of documents. Singh’s plea had termed the reasons of the search as ‘illegal, arbitrary and liable to be quashed’.
