    Supreme Court unhappy with pace of Hasan Ali probe


    The Supreme Court on Tuesday mulled invoking terror and other stringent penal charges against Pune stud owner Hasan Ali Khan, accused of massive money laundering and tax evasion, for his alleged links with arm dealers and people linked to terror activities.
    A bench of Justices B. Sudershan Reddy and S.S. Nijjar also asked the Union government to examine if the case registered against him for possessing fake passports could be probed by the CBI.
    The bench contemplated invoking terror charges under anti-terror law Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and other stringent provisions of the Indian Penal Code owing to Khan’s alleged links with various arms dealers and those involved with terror-related activities, threatening the country’s security.
    The bench expressed displeasure that the probe against Mr. Khan in the fake passport case had not proceeded in the right direction with right speed “as nothing is moving despite the magnitude of the issue.”
    The court made the observations and issued directions while hearing a public interest litigation filed by eminent jurist Ram Jethmalani, seeking repatriation of huge corpus of black money stashed in banks abroad by unscrupulous Indian citizens.
    Mr. Khan was arrested last night by the Enforcement Directorate which carried out searches at his Pune home and that of his associates’ premises in several cities, cracking the whip to meet today’s Supreme Court deadline.
    The 53-year-old Hasan Ali, who was detained in Pune, was brought to Mumbai later and was grilled by the ED for nearly six hours before being put under arrest.
    The apex court also asked the government to furnish details of the four officials probing the case against Khan, who were abruptly transferred midway into the investigation.
    The government responded to the query saying the officials were on deputation with the ED and were repatriated.
    Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam, however, assured the court that he would take up the matter with the government and see that the officials are retained.
    The government also admitted that the court was justified in seeking Khan’s custodial interrogation as the charges against him warranted such questioning.
    “It is a case in which a case is made out for custodial interrogation,” Mr. Subramaniam said.
    The Solicitor General also admitted that one of the investigating officers, who was a deputy commissioner of police, was earlier harassed apparently by his superiors as he had the courage to take on Khan in the fake passport case.
    Meanwhile, senior counsel Anil Divan, appearing for petitioner Jethmalani, expressed serious apprehension about Khan’s life as he had enough material to expose the powers-that-be behind his various murky deals.
    The counsel recalled that Ashutosh Asthana, a key accused in the Ghaziabad provident fund scam, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Dasna Jail of the district during the CBI probe into the case.
    Meanwhile, the ED submitted to the court in a sealed cover its status report on the probe into the case related to black money in which they also mentioned Khan’s arrest last night.
    Mr. Subramaniam also told the court that besides the ED report, he would also furnish a status report relating to the investigation so far conducted by the Income Tax department.
    The bench posted the matter for further hearing to March 18.

    SC for probe into terror charges against Hasan Ali


    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to consider slapping stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act charges under against stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan.

    The apex court sought the probe report from the Enforcement Directorate (ED). It has also ordered the director of ED to supervise the probe and give the status report to court.

    The Centre has said that there is momentum against Khan and expects a major breakthrough in the next ten days. Meanwhile, the apex court sought fresh status report by March 18.

    This comment comes after the apex court saw the probe status report. It also asked why the passport forgery case against him was not given to CBI.

    The Centre admitted that the apex court was justified in expressing its anger during the last hearing about tax probe against Khan.


    Hasan Ali Khan is accused of massive money laundering and tax evasion and is expected to be produced before court later today.

    Ali has been taken to JJ Hospital for a medical examination before where he complained of high blood pressure.

    Ali was arrested on Monday night by the Enforcement Directorate which carried out multi-city searches at his Pune home and his associates' premises, cracking the whip to meet Tuesday's Supreme Court deadline.

    53-year-old Ali who was detained in Pune was brought to Mumbai at 6pm, was grilled by the ED for nearly six hours before they put him under arrest around midnight.

    MUMBAI: Slamming the Enforcement Directorate over its handling of the Hasan Ali Khan money laundering case, a local court today observed it was not able to make out even a single case against the businessman to seek his custody and asked the agency to do its "homework".

    "You people are not able to make out even a single case against him (Khan), so what do you want his custody for? What do you want to investigate him for? You people show one offence against him and then we can talk of custody," Principal Sessions Court Judge M L Tahaliyani said pulling up the ED, which is already facing heat from Supreme Court.

    The judge raised these questions while giving a severe tongue lashing to the ED even before its counsel could begin her arguments seeking the remand of 53-year-old Pune-based stud farm owner for custodial interrogation.

    "You can't keep any person in custody unless you make a case (against him)," the Judge said. Khan was yesterday remanded in custody of ED for one day and will remain in its custody till the court, which will resume hearing tomorrow, gives its order on the remand application.

    The court was apparently peeved at Public Prosecutor N Punde's apparent failure to explain the case against Khan under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

    The PP's admission that they were relying on certain documents ED had received from undisclosed sources, further infuriated the Judge, who said, "How can you rely on those documents from undisclosed sources."

    The court pulled up the ED for not being able to show that Seven lakh dollars that was claimed to have been transferred from Khan's Sarasin Bank account in Switzerland was tainted money or proceeds of crime. "So far you have not been able to show me anything", said Tahilyani.

    When the ED counsel referred to Khan obtaining multiple passports using fake documents, an angry Tahaliyani asked," Did he make money from the passport?"

    "If you want to do some home work you can take time", said the judge and adjourned the hearing till tomorrow.

    Earlier, after hearing arguments from ED and Khan's counsel I P Bagadia on the question of jurisdiction of his court to hear the case, Tahaliyani ruled that the matter could be heard by him.

    The Judge had yesterday adjourned the proceedings, saying the matter should first be brought before the metropolitan magistrate.

    In its application seeking Khan's remand, the ED had referred to the huge amounts stashed away by him abroad and links to international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi.

    The application also speaks about the multiple passports he had acquired using forged documents. Khan had been arrested by Mumbai police in this connection after the Regional Passport Office filed a complaint against him in 2008. He was later enlarged on bail.

    The ED said Khan had given instructions to transfer funds from his foreign bank accounts to various accounts outside India. It said that USD 700,000 was transferred from Khan's account in Sarasin Bank in Switzerland to the account of S K Financial Services based in the UK maintained by Barclays Bank, London through Citi Bank, New York.

    The ED accused Khan of dealing in, acquiring and holding foreign exchange equivalent to Rs 36,000 crore.

    On his Khashoggi links, it said," This requires intensive probe as it has a bearing on national security as well."

    While taking note of accusations of Khan's links with Khashoggi and those involved in terror activities, the Supreme Court had yesterday asked the probe agencies to weigh the option of booking him under anti-terror law.

    The ED also said that it had seized laptops and incriminating documents during the searches conducted at Khan's premises.

    While accusing Khan of not cooperating in the investigations, ED said it apprehended that he may tamper with evidence and dispose of the money lying in his bank accounts.

    Khan, a real estate agent and stud farm owner, was arrested on Monday midnight after prolonged searches at his Pune and Mumbai residences and sustained grilling that lasted several hours.

    The Supreme Court last week came down heavily on the ED for not being able to go after Khan and other alleged black money hoarders.

    ED seeks 14-day remand of Hasan Ali


    After being rapped by a local court for not doing its “homework”, the Enforcement Directorate on Thursday took the line that “certain links” of Hasan Ali Khan needed to be probed as it has a bearing on “national security” and pressed for his 14-day custodial interrogation.
    The ED also cited alleged non-cooperation by the 53-year-old the Pune businessman and farm owner in its probe into the money laundering charges to seek his remand.
    A day after it was rebuked by Principal Sessions Court Judge M.L. Tahaliyani for not doing its “homework” to make a proper case against Mr. Khan that warranted his custody, the ED on Thursday presented to the court in a sealed cover what it claimed was evidence to link him to various offences and sought his remand.
    Rajiv Awasthi, a Delhi lawyer, who appeared for the ED, said the probe was moving in “a positive direction” and stressed the need for Mr. Khan’s remand to “bridge the gap in the investigation”.
    Mr. Awasthi said Mr. Khan had been arrested by the ED because he had not cooperated in the probe during which he was called to their office 29 times, 18 of those for answering questions relating to violations of Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
    “We have to question him about certain links, documents and statements. We also have to submit a status report to the Supreme Court on March 18,” the ED counsel said.
    While seeking Mr. Khan’s remand, the ED had cited his links to international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi and insisted that those required to be probed “as it has a bearing on national security as well”.
    Mr. Khan has been charged with stashing $8 billion in the UBS, Switzerland, though the bank has claimed that documents seized by the investigating agencies during raids on his premises could be forged and said it had no relationship with him.
    Defence counsel I.P. Bagadia opposed the ED’s demand for Mr. Khan’s custody, saying simply because a status report has to be submitted to the Supreme Court (in relation to a PIL seeking repatriation of black money stashed abroad) Mr. Khan could not be sent to custody.
    He said when Mr. Khan was arrested by Mumbai police in the fake passport case in 2009, the ED has submitted an application seeking permission to investigate the case but had not prayed for his custody.
    Mr. Khan is also accused of having secured multiple passports using fake and forged documents.
    Judge Tahaliyani later adjourned the hearing and is likely to decide on whether any offence is made out against Mr. Khan under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act on Friday.

    I think the ED officials are running like headless chickens due to Supreme court bashing of ED investigation and not doing the due diligence in implicating Hasan Ali or they are doing things deliberately at the behest of political masters to water-down the investigation.

    Hasan Ali says the document proof against him should not be made public. Some International Anti-Security Agency's name has come up in the investigation with Hasan Ali. I think he is a part of the home grown terror groups which are linked to Al-Qaeda. He must not be spared. If we can get the truth fron Hasan Ali, then we may get some top babus manes also in this money laundering.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Hasan Ali Khan or Syed Mohammed Hassan Ali Khan[1] is a 56-year-old alleged money-launderer[2] based in India and allegedly worth USD 9 billion or more according to police-authorities. This figure has been verified from a letter written by UBS (Zurich) to Khan. The Government of India has also confirmed the existence of this account in UBS, and ordered him to pay Rs 50,000 crore (USD 10 billion) in taxes on that wealth. However, according to Khan, he is a scrap dealer with an annual income of Rs 30 lakh (USD 60,000).[3] Some sources claim that he might be the fourth richest person in India and amongst the world's dollar billionaires.[4] However, he is not officially recognized as a billionaire by any publication because most of his money is in the form of unaccounted wealth or black money. This can be considered true because India tops the list for black money in the entire world with almost US$1456 billion in Swiss banks (USD 1.4 trillion approximately) in the form of black money.[5] According to the data provided by the Swiss Banking Association Report (2006), India has more black money than the rest of the world combined.[6][7] Indian Swiss bank account assets are worth 13 times the country’s national debt.[8]

    In Swiss bank accounts, the account holder need not even give his or her name. Perhaps that explains why Hasan Ali Khan's name does not figure in any UBS accounts. Also, the account holder's name need not even appear in any of the official documents of the account.[9] The Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax department along with the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Maharashtra are probing the illegal investments and charges of money laundering against Khan.[10] The Supreme Court of India (SC) questioned the Central Government’s inertia on this issue. “What the hell is going on in this country?” the bench of justices asked as it heard a PIL filed over this issue.[11] Expressing its disappointment, the bench remarked: "There are instances when minor offenders are shot down for violating Section 144 CrPC, but you don't take any action against these people. We are very sorry. All these people are now free.[12] What is in the way of taking action against Hasan Ali? How many years will investigations continue against Ali?” The Income Tax tribunal also reportedly asked Ali to reply to their notice within 15 days. Ali reportedly has not paid his tax evasion penalty worth Rs 40,000 crore.

    The Supreme Court today asked Centre to consider invoking anti-terror and stringent IPC charges against Pune stud owner Hasan Ali Khan, accused of massive money laundering and tax evasion and suspected of having links with arms dealers and terror-related activities.

    A bench of justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar also sought the government's response for entrusting to the CBI the forged passport case against Khan on the ground that investigations were not going in the right direction.

    The bench suggested invoking of anti-terror laws like Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and other stringent provisions of the Indian Penal Code owing to Khan's alleged links with various arms dealers including Adnan Khashogi and terror-related activities, impinging national security.

    "There is angle relating to his links with arms dealers. There is a terror angle. Threat to national security. Whether these facts which are emanating from investigation in the case registered under PML, FEMA, Passport Act, would they attract any penal consequences?" the bench queried, while directing the Centre to explore its suggestions.

    Senior counsel Anil Divan expressed apprehension over threat to Khan's life as he had enough material to expose the powers-that-be behind the various murky deals and wanted the Government to ensure his security.

    The bench expressed displeasure that the probe against Khan in the fake passport case had not proceeded in the right direction with right speed "as nothing is moving despite the magnitude of the issue."

    It asked the Director of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to personally supervise the ongoing investigation and place a status report covering the concerns on national security expressed by the petitioner.

    The court issued the directions while hearing a public interest litigation filed by eminent jurist Ram Jethmalani, seeking recovery of huge corpus of black money stashed in banks abroad by Indians.

    Khan was arrested last night by the Enforcement Directorate which carried out searches at his Pune home and that of his associates' premises in several cities ahead of today's Supreme Court deadline.

    53-year-old Ali, first detained in Pune, was later taken to Mumbai and grilled by the ED for nearly six hours before being put under arrest.

    The ED placed a status report on Khan's statements recorded during interrogation.

    Concerned over allegations that the probe was being scuttled by vested interests, the bench asked government to furnish details of the four officials abruptly transferred midway during the investigation

    The government responded to the query saying the officials were on deputation with the ED and were repatriated.

    Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam, however, assured the court that he would take up the matter with the government and try to see that the officials are retained.

    The Centre admitted that the court at the earlier hearing was justified in seeking Khan's custodial interrogation as the charges against him were serious.

    "I must candidly admit that the concerns expressed by this court for custodial interrogation were fully justified.

    "I would ensure that the Director of the Enforcement Directorate would personally supervise the investigation. We would also look into the allegations that certain officers were victimized and take suitable steps," Subramanium said.

    The Solicitor General also admitted that one of the investigating officers, deputy commissioner of police,Mumbai was harassed by his superiors as he had the courage to take on Khan in the fake passport case.

    "As far as one of the officers is concerned, he was a DCP in Mumbai police and was investigating the forged passport case of Hassan Ali Khan. He has paid heavily for touching that person," he said.

    Expressing concern over the threat to Khan's life, Divan appearing for Jethmalani, recalled that Ashutosh Asthana, a key accused in the Ghaziabad provident fund scam, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Dasna Jail of the district during the CBI probe into the case.

    Meanwhile, the ED submitted to the court in a sealed cover its status report on the probe into the case related to black money in which they also mentioned Khan's arrest last night.

    Subramaniam told the court that besides the ED report, he would also furnish a status report relating to the investigation so far conducted by the Income Tax department.

    The Solicitor General said the Centre was considering registering cases under the Prevention of Corruption Act and assured the bench that a copy of the investigation report of the IT would be placed before it.

    Responding to Divan's complaint that the ED had started the adjudication proceedings even before completion of the investigations, the apex court said,"Any decision in the adjudication proceedings would be subject to the final outcome of the petition."

    The bench posted the matter for further hearing to March 18.

    SC for invoking terror charges against Hasan Ali Khan

    Snub for ED, Hasan Ali Khan gets bail


    A special court on Friday rejected the remand plea made by Enforcement Directorate (ED) for custody of Pune businessman Hasan Ali Khan and later allowed him bail on personal bond of Rs 80,000. Special Judge under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) M L Tahliyani enlarged Khan on various conditions like he has been asked to remain present in Mumbai for next five days and be available at ED office between 11 am to 2 pm. Earlier, the Court rejected the plea made by prosecution seeking Khan's remand and ruled that there was no prima facie offence made out against Khan.
    ··Court also said that there was no evidence to suggest that a proceed that was tainted had been portrayed as untainted.
    The court was not convinced about prosecution’s argument that a proceed has been made through the forgery of passport.

    This judgement reaffirms my belief that Agencies like ED are just puppets and are work on instructions from 10 Janpath or PMO . what else could be reason for shoddy investigation. They fail to submit even a single evidence to gain his custody. A sad day indeed for the country when one more scamster walks free.

    Hasan Ali walks free and now he may escape to another country by the help of the political background he has. Congress is one who is protecting this man who is a helper of terrorists. But the congress say that Narendra Modi is killing innocent Muslims. David Colmen Headley , in his interrogation with the F.B.I. said that Shorrabudin and his wife were I.S.I. agents and were sent to kill Narendra Modi and still the congress say that it was a fake encounter. We really are being ruled by foreigners. INDIA is being ruled by pakistani terrorists, american government and the chinese communists. That is the reason the GoI is not taking any steps to attack the terror camps across the border in pakistan and also not taking any steps to stop the aggressive nature of the china on the other hand.

    Black money trail: Hasan Ali walks free

    MUMBAI: In an embarrassment for the Enforcement Directorate, a local court on Friday rejected its plea seeking remand of Hasan Ali Khan for his custodial interrogation in a money laundering case and granted bail to the controversial businessman.

    Special sessions judge ML Tahaliyani said the ED relied on documents of questionable authenticity to build a case against Hasan Ali Khan. The court granted him bail for Rs 80,000 and two sureties. The court refused to stay the order for ED to file an appeal in the higher court.

    The ED had arrested Khan on Monday for money laundering. The court said the ED failed to prove that there existed a case under Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The court also said ED did not carry out investigations to prove the authenticity of the documents. The court said ED did not make any efforts to arrest Khan till now though the investigations began in 2007. (Read: Hasan Ali issued passport in Patna!)

    One of the requirements to invoke PMLA is that the suspect should have committed a criminal offence and generated money from it. This money if the suspect converted into tainted money, then it becomes a case under PMLA. The only criminal case against Ali is of using forged documents to obtain multiple passports. The judge said ED failed to prove that the he generated money in the forgery case and laundered it.

    The documents found by the ED in its investigations show a transfer of $8 billion (Rs 36,000 crore) in his bank account in UBS Zurich. UBS has said that the documents submitted by the ED to prove this investments were forged. ED said $7 lakh (over Rs 3 crore) he transferred from his account his Bank Sarasin Switzerland to Barclays Bank account of SK Financial Services.

    Tahaliyani said ED failed to prove there are cross border implications of the offence. The agency could not prove that the crime was committed in India and the property obtained from this crime was transferred outside.

    Cops probing Hasan Ali's links in Hyderabad

    HYDERABAD: The state police have begun a probe into businessman Hasan Ali Khan's links with Hyderabad, who has reportedly stashed away billions of dollars in foreign bank accounts.

    Sources said that while the Hyderabad-based team of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials has not been asked to investigate the antecedents or the probable activity of Khan in Hyderabad, the city where he was born, brought up and began his `conning' career, the state police department is quietly checking his past links with the city and if he is still dealing with anybody here.

    The rise of Khan, one of the six children of Subhani Nawab of Musheerabad, has been meteoric. He allegedly is a trickster, bank scamster, hawala operator and international money laundering racketeer. But the city police, reportedly due to his highly placed connections, have never been tough on him. There are at least a dozen cases still registered against him but he was never probed conclusively.

    Police suspect he might be still in contact with his former wife Mahboob Unnisa alias Shahinshah and his son Sami Khan who live in Banjara Hills. Khan divorced Shahenshah in 1999. His son dabbled with modeling for a while.

    Khan, who married the sister of a horse trainer in Pune several years ago, has not been spotted in Hyderabad in recent years. Some senior leaders from different political parties and bureaucrats used to visit his house regularly when he stayed with his family in Banjara Hills, the sources said.

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has ordered the arrest of Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan in connection with a massive money laundering scam. Hasan Ali, accused of stashing black money abroad, has been remanded in the Enforcement Directorate's custody for four days, during which he will be questioned.

    Stung by a Mumbai court's rejection of its plea for custodial interrogation of Hasan Ali Khan, the Enforcement Directorate had earlier today moved the apex court challenging refusal of its plea against the Pune-based stud farm owner.

    A bench of justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar took up the plea at 2pm. The bench had earlier chided the Centre for failing to subject Khan and other alleged money launderers to custodial interrogation.

    Khan is facing a Rs 70,000 crore tax demand notice from the Income-Tax Department as well as the ED probe.

    The ED had arrested 53-year-old Khan on March 7 after being pulled up by the Supreme Court for its failure to ensure his custodial interrogation.
