Today, a three-judge Bench comprising Justices Khanwilkar, Maheshwari and Ravikumar will hear a group of petitions challenging several provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA). The petitioners challenging PMLA argue that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) under the PMLA exercises police powers without being bound by the rules of criminal procedure. In the previous hearing, the Court heard Sr. Adv. Kapil Sibal who presented the issues faced by petitioners because of the special powers of the ED.

 

The Court will continue to hear arguments on behalf of the petitioners.
