Nawab Malik

THE ENFORCEMENT Directorate (ED) on Thursday approached a special court in Mumbai seeking constitution of a medical board to verify the health status of NCP leader Nawab Malik who has been undergoing treatment at a private hospital since May.

Malik was arrested by the ED in February in connection with an alleged money-laundering case linked to a Kurla property.

On May 13, the special court had permitted Malik to be admitted to a private hospital for treatment, relying on a report by the state-run J J Hospital that certain tests required for his treatment were not available there.

The ED has submitted that Malik has been admitted at the private hospital for the past four months and the agency was not aware about his health status.
