They were produced in Bankshall Court at an early hours and, later, the court granted the three-day remand.

The court also ordered to send his wife Sushmita Saha to jail.

He had been hiding there in guise of ‘Sib Sankar Halder.’
The Enforcement Directorate arrested PK Halder and five others conducting raids at various parts of West Bengal.
