Five of them, including a woman, were charged under the 2002 law for smuggling money into India from Bangladesh through the 'hawala' system. PK Halder and his associates invested these funds in various business and purchased property in West Bengal.

ED appealed to the court to take the accused in 14 days remand. The court granted them remand till 7 June.

PK Halder and the others were so long in ED custody. After the judicial remand they will be kept as prisoners in jail. According to the prison rules, ED officials will be able to interrogate then at specific times.
