ED can’t arrest accused once court takes cognisance of complaint: SC


May 16, 2024

Supreme Court restricts ED’s arrest power under PMLA post special court’s cognisance. Justices A S Oka and Ujjal Bhuyan emphasize Section 4 of PMLA, Article 21 rights, and accused treatment post-summons. Writing the judgment, Justice Oka said once the special court takes cognisance, ED loses the power to arrest the accused, who in turn cannot apply for anticipatory bail.
