The court proceedings have been closely watched, with both leaders denying any wrongdoing. Their judicial custody has been extended multiple times as the investigation continues to unfold. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been actively probing the case, seeking to uncover the extent of the alleged money laundering activities.

The extension of custody has led to varied reactions from political circles. Supporters of both leaders have expressed their belief in their innocence and have called for a fair and transparent investigation.
