Delhi court extends by one day ED custody of three vivo-India executives

A Delhi court on Friday extended by one day the ED custody of three vivo-India executives in connection with a money laundering case against the Chinese smartphone maker and others.

The court extended the custody of Interim CEO of vivo-India Hong Xuquan alias Terry, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Harinder Dahiya and consultant Hemant Munjal on an application moved by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The ED had sought further custody of the accused for four days but the court granted only one more day for their custodial interrogation.

The accused were produced before the court on expiry of their six-day ED custody.

The accused were taken into custody again under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The federal agency had earlier arrested four people — mobile company Lava International’s MD Hari Om Rai, Chinese national Guangwen alias Andrew Kuang, and chartered accountants Nitin Garg and Rajan Malik — in the case.

They are in judicial custody at present.

The ED had filed a charge-sheet against these four in a special PMLA court in Delhi. The court recently took cognisance of the charge-sheet.
