New Delhi, October 30

A day after arresting Bineesh Kodiyeri, son of Kerala CPM leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) today said he allegedly credited “huge amount of unaccounted funds” into the bank accounts of a drug peddler.

The ED had yesterday arrested Bineesh from Bengaluru under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and produced him before a local special court, which sent him to the agency’s custody till November 2. Officials in the ED said during the investigation, it was revealed that the “drug peddler” in the case — Mohammed Anoop — was a ‘benamidar’ of Bineesh. The term ‘benamidar’ is used for a person who holds ‘benami’ property on behalf of a beneficial owner of the property. Anoop was arrested on October 17. — TNS
