Mumbai: Senior National Congress Party (NCP) leader and former deputy chief minister of Maharashtra Chhagan Bhujbal, who is in custody in connection with money laundering case, has approached the Bombay high court again seeking bail. He has filed for bail for the fourth time.

“We have filed the bail application purely on the basis of law. Nothing more than that,” said Bhujbal’s lawyer Shalabh Saxena.

Bhujbal was arrested on March 14, 2016, for the alleged malpractices in awarding of the contract for the construction of Maharashtra Sadan in Delhi to M/s K S Chamankar Enterprises. According to the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Bhujbal allegedly misused his post as the minister for PWD in the Maharashtra government.
