Mumbai police seek permission to arrest Tapuriah
Kashinath Tapuriah, an associate of Hasan Ali Khan, is an accused in a fake passport case.
Mumbai: The Mumbai Police on Friday filed an application in a sessions court, seeking permission to arrest Kolkata-based businessman Kashinath Tapuriah, an associate of Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan, in a fake passport case.
Khan and Tapuriah are currently in judicial custody, after Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested them in a money laundering case.
"We have sought permission to arrest Tapuriah," said chief public prosecutor Kalpana Chavan.
In 2008, a case was registered at Worli police station against Khan for allegedly acquiring a fake passport. According to police, Tapuriah had organised the documents.
The ED had booked Khan and Tapuriah, claiming that the two had laundered $93 million in foreign banks. The ED also claimed that Khan obtained a large chunk of this fortune through the sale of weapons to international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi.
The ED has also claimed that besides advising Khan on his foreign bank accounts, Tapuriah had also helped Khan in getting a few contracts for supply of scrap to some top steel companies for Khan's scrap trading business.
Meanwhile, the Worli police have also filed an application, seeking court permission to acquire their signatures and send it to hand-writing experts for analysis.
