Thampi remanded to judicial custody till Feb 7

New Delhi


A special CBI court here on Tuesday remanded NRI businessman C.C. Thampi to judicial custody till February 7 in connection with a money laundering probe against businessman Robert Vadra.

Special CBI Judge Arvind Kumar refused to extend Thampi's Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody and reserved orders on his bail plea for Wednesday.

Thampi was arrested by the ED this month after it was found that arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari along with co-conspirators -- Vadra and Thampi -- had evolved a money laundering scheme by transferring the proceeds of crime several times from one individual to another and also to make money trail investigation difficult.IANS
