The Supreme Court has agreed to hear tomorrow a plea by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against the permission granted to Rajeev Saxena, an approver in a money laundering case related to the AgustaWestland chopper scam, to travel abroad on medical grounds. 

The agency mentioned the matter before a bench comprising justices Sanjiv Khanna and BR Gavai. The Delhi High Court had, earlier this month, allowed Saxena to go abroad for treatment for blood cancer and other ailments. 

The high court had given relief to Saxena noting that he had already been granted bail on medical grounds, before being pardoned and made an approver. Saxena, a director of two Dubai-based firms - UHY Saxena and Matrix Holdings - was one of the accused named in the charge sheet filed by the ED in the 3,600-crore rupee AgustaWestland scam.
