The Delhi high court has ruled that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) does not have the power to arrest a person under Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The court stated that the power to arrest lies in Section 19 of the PMLA, but even that power is not unrestricted. The court emphasized that authorities must comply with certain requirements before arresting a person. The ruling came in response to a plea seeking the quashing of summons issued by the ED.
