The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has approached a Bombay Sessions Court with a plea seeking non-bailable arrest warrant against former Indian Premiere League (IPL) chief Lalit Modi in connection with the money laundering case.

The court will decide on ED's plea on 3 August, ANI reports.

The ED had, on 3 July, served a notice to Modi asking him to surrender within two weeks in connection with the case registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The BCCI had named Modi in the IPL scam and filed a complaint against him in 2010, citing irregularities in funds, Zee News reports.

The ED had for the second time sent him a notice through email asking him to appear before the law enforcement agency before 22 July.

However, Modi had claimed on Saturday that he did not receive any notice from the ED.
