The Bombay High Court on Friday denied immediate relief to Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik, who is in jail seeking a day’s bail to vote in the ongoing Rajya Sabha elections.
Justice PD Naik’s bench instructed Malik’s lawyers to amend the petition seeking to provide a police escort to take Malik to the Vidhan Bhavan to vote.
Advocates for the minister insisted that they were not demanding bail but merely for a police escort. The High Court has instructed attorneys to amend the escort application and contact the appropriate court.
Nawab Malik’s amended appeal will be tabled in front of Justice Bharati Dangre’s seat at 1:30 pm.
Malik was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on February 23 in connection with the illegal money laundering case against the Pakistani gangster Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar. He had applied to the Bombay High Court after a special court in Mumbai rejected the plea of his and NCP leader Anil Deshmukh seeking permission to vote in the elections.
