Sessions Court Extends Senthil Balaji’s Remand to July 8 in Money Laundering Case

A sessions court in Tamil Nadu has extended the remand of former Transport Minister V Senthil Balaji until July 8, following his arrest last year in a high-profile money laundering case. Principal Sessions Judge S Alli presided over the proceedings via video-conferencing from the Central Puzhal Prison, where Balaji is currently held.

The case, which resurfaced during Thursday’s hearing, revolves around alleged corruption during Balaji’s tenure as Transport Minister in the previous AIADMK government, specifically linked to a cash-for-jobs scam. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been spearheading the investigation, gathering substantial evidence against Balaji.

During the hearing, arguments were concluded on two significant petitions filed by Balaji’s defense team. The first petition demanded access to specific documents—namely “Relied Upon Document Nos-16 and 17″—which are counterfoil challans related to Balaji’s bank account and were previously collected by the ED.

Additionally, the court also discussed a second petition from Balaji that requested a deferral of ongoing proceedings and an adjournment of the case to a later date. The judge has scheduled further hearings on this petition for the same date, July 8.
