New Delhi: Investigating agencies probing alleged black money cases involving Pune-based stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan are mulling approaching a Mumbai court to expedite the start of a trial against him in a money
laundering case pending since 2011.

Sources privy to the plans by the agencies said today the case of alleged tax evasion and laundering of funds against the 60-year-old businessman may be put on fast track.

Agencies including Income Tax, Enforcement Directorate and the Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai Police have already filed their complaints of alleged tax evasion against Khan.

The move came against the backdrop of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing black money getting down to business and holding its first high-level meeting in the national capital yesterday.

The name of Khan was mentioned in the Terms of Reference issued by the Government for the specially constituted SIT headed by former Supreme Court Judge M B Shah.
