A Delhi court on Tuesday allowed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to quiz corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar for two more days in a money laundering case.

Special Judge Bharat Parashar extended Talwar's ED custody after the probe agency told him that he is required to be confronted with two people in connection with the case.

Talwar was presented before the court on expiry of his ED custody.

Talwar was deported from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on January 30. He was presented before a court on January 31 which sent him to seven days ED custody.

The ED said Rs 200 crore was allegedly received in one of the bank accounts of a company of Talwar in Singapore and that he is being probed for his suspected role in the irregular seat sharing on Air India's profitable routes with some international airlines.

Talwar had fled to Dubai after the Indian agencies started probing his role in concealing the income of over Rs 1,000 crore as well as facilitating aviation contracts during the UPA regime.

He is accused of brokering aviation sector deals, getting government approval for foreign companies, and securing favours for clients due to his ties with UPA functionaries.
