The minister, who was apprehended by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in June last year, appeared before the local court via video conferencing from the Central Prison.

V Senthil Balaji faces charges under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection with a cash-for-jobs scandal during a previous AIADMK regime when he served as the Transport minister.

The court has also postponed the hearing on Balaji’s request to defer the trial in the case until February 7.

This decision comes after the minister’s legal representative requested additional time to respond to the ED’s earlier submissions on the matter.
