The judicial custody of Shiv Sena leader and senior journalist Sanjay Raut has been extended by 14 days. He is facing a money laundering and corruption case in connection with the redevelopment of Patra Chawl in Mumbai.

The Enforcement Directorate arrested Raut on July 31. Four days back the ED also filed the charge sheet against him. ED stated that in the 1039 crore deal Raut is involved.  ED presented evidence relating to Raut’s involvement in the case. He was acting behind the curtains in the deal.  ED strongly opposed granting him bail.
