Former cabinet minister of Maharashtra, Chhagan Bhujbal has been granted bail in the Maharashtra Sadan Scam case

A special ACB court granted bail to NCP leader  and former Maharashtra deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal in the Maharashtra Sadan and Mumbai University library cases.

Chhagan Bhujbal will, however, continue to remain in judicial custody in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) case against him.

Chhagan Bhujbal was arrested on March 14 arrested  on charge of money laundering in the Maharashtra Sadan scam.

His nephew Sameer Bhujbal too was granted bail by the court.

“They both were produced in the court and were granted bail on a surety of Rs 50,000 each,” special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said.

The court had on June 15 issued a production warrant against the two accused.

“I had prayed to the court to issue a non-bailable warrant against Pankaj but his lawyers pleaded for exemption. However, the court has directed him to be present on the next date,” he said.

The case is likely to come up for hearing on July 22.
