Court extends Maha minister Nawab Malik's judicial custody

Malik was produced before Special Judge R N Rokade, designated to hear cases related to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

A special court here on Monday extended the judicial custody of Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik till April 22 even as the NCP leader complained of ill health.

Malik was produced before Special Judge R N Rokade, designated to hear cases related to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

The NCP leader stepped into the witness box and told the court that he has been unwell due to kidney ailments and that he has a swelling in his legs.

Malik further said that whenever he complained of pain in his legs, the jail authorities only gave him painkillers.

"I want a permanent solution to my medical problems," Malik said.

Malik's lawyer Kushal Mor told the court that the minister's plea filed before the Supreme Court challenging his illegal arrest and seeking immediate release is likely to be heard on April 22.

Special Judge Rokade then extended Malik's judicial custody till April 22.
