Mumbai: A special PMLA court allowed Enforcement Directorate to install CCTV cameras outside the residence of Rakesh Wadhawan of Housing Development Infrastructure Limited, who is a key accused in the PMC bank fraud case.

The central agency apprehends that Wadhawan might tamper with the evidence or attempt to dispose of unidentified assets while out on medical bail.

Special judge MG Deshpande, allowed the ED’s plea, observing that Wadhawan was one of the main accused in the case and the proceeds of the crime was huge.

The court said that since the investigation was in progress, “care has to be taken that in any case accused Rakesh Wadhawan should not misuse the liberty granted by Supreme Court and to that extent the contention raised by the ED is justified. If the same is allowed no prejudice will be caused to the accused”.

The prosecutor for the ED, Kavita Patil, had on Tuesday moved a plea asking the court to allow it to install CCTV cameras outside Wadhawan’s house.

Besides, the plea stated that while on interim bail, Wadhawan might tamper with evidence or dispose of unidentified assets. The agency said they may be allowed to install CCTV cameras so that it “can take a record of any potential incidents or violations that may occur during the accused’s release on interim bail”.
