ED attaches Rs 25.44 crore of Nagpur’s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd in coal block case

Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday attached cash deposits worth Rs 25.44 crores of M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd, Nagpur, under the Prevention Of Money Laundering Act, 2002, in the coal block case.

In the past, the Marki-Zari-Jamni-Adkoli Coal block situated in Wardha Coalfield in Yavatmal District in Maharashtra was allocated to M/s Maharashtra State Mining Corporation Ltd (MSMCL), a Government of Maharashtra Undertaking. MSMCL had then invited bids for mining and commercial use of coal and one of the bid conditions was that the bidder should have a minimum three years of experience in actual mining of open cast or underground mines. M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd did not fulfil the technical evaluation criteria of the bid documents as it did not have the actual mining experience in open cast or underground mining operations.

In the process of evaluation of bids, DG Philip, the then MD of MSMCL had remarked about the ineligibility of M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd in qualifying the technical criteria of the bidding conditions on account of the company not having any experience in mining activities. Despite this, the Tender Committee of MSMCL technically qualified M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd which resulted in M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd becoming H-1 bidder and it was awarded the contract. Later, on the basis of an FIR by CBI, investigation under PMLA, 2002 was taken up by the Enforcement Directorate.

Investigation under PMLA, 2002 revealed that M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd transferred the mining related activities to one of its group companies named M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Energy Pvt Ltd and got allotted itself 1.86 crores equity shares of Rs 10 each of M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Energy Pvt Ltd for consideration other than cash. Investigation revealed that on account of being awarded the contract to develop the coal block, M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd benefitted to the extent of Rs.25.44 crores by selling equity shares of M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Energy Pvt Ltd to Jaypee Group and M/s SHEL Investments Consultancy Pvt Ltd. Provisional Attachment Order dated March 13, 2018, has been issued attaching cash deposits of Rs.25.44 crores belonging to M/s Sunil Hi-Tech Engineers Ltd. Further investigation in this matter is in progress.

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.



The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
