Senior Advocate Amit Desai, Malik's lawyer, will continue to argue before a bench of Justices PB Varale and SM Modak in Malik's appeal against his arrest.

The Bombay High Court will hear a Habeas Corpus petition fi led by Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik on March 9th, 2022, challenging the enforcement Directorate's (ED)money laundering charges against him and asking his immediate release.

The case will be heard by Justices PB Varale and SM Modak. Malik's lawyer, Senior Advocate Amit Desai, told the court yesterday that the ED had detained him for a 22-year-old transaction, and that the arrest was made retrospectively under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Malik was arrested by the ED on suspicion of buying a property from Dawood at a lower price than market value.

Special Judge RN Rokade had initially remanded Malik to ED custody, citing the need for more time to investigate proceeds of crime spanning the previous 20 years.

Malik was subsequently placed in judicial custody until March 21, 2022 according to the special judge.
