Patra Chawl Land Scam Case: Sanjay Raut Gets Bail

Mumbai (Maharashtra): A PMLA court in Mumbai on Wednesday granted bail to Shiv Sena leader and MP Sanjay Raut in connection with the Patra Chawl land scam case.

Along with Sanjay Raut, the second accused in this case, Praveen Raut was also granted bail by the PMLA court. Sanjay Raut got bail today after about 102 days.

Raut was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on August 1 in connection with alleged financial irregularities in the redevelopment of the Patra Chawl in suburban Goregaon in Mumbai.

When the court pronounced the order, family members and supporters of the Shiv Sena MP clapped inside the courtroom and corridor of the court.

Meanwhile, Additional Solicitor General has sought a stay on the execution of the bail order for a short period so that ED can appeal in a higher court against the order of Mumbai’s PMLA court.

Mumbai’s PMLA court will pronounce the order on demand of stay on the execution of bail order to Sanjay Raut at 3 pm today.

The Shiv Sena leader is accused of receiving a part of the money from middleman Praveen Raut, who had allegedly earned it illegally in the case of the redevelopment of Patra Chawl, located in Mumbai’s Goregaon. It is also alleged that Sanjay Raut bought properties in Dadar and Alibaug with that money.

Sanjay Raut was continuously lodged in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai since August 1. Former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and former minister Nawab Malik are also lodged in this jail.

This news is being considered as a relief for the Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance before the municipal elections.
