New Delhi, Sep 17 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Vikas Sinha, an associate of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda, who has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate for his alleged role in the hawala transactions and the illegal investments.
Vikas Sinha, the brother of another associate Binod Sinha, Vikash, has been charged under sections 409 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating), 465 (forgery), 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and other provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act by the ED.
