[RxPG] New Delhi, May 15 - The Enforcement Directorate - Tuesday opposed in the Delhi High Court a plea of the key accused in the Iraqi food-for-oil scandal, Andleeb Sehgal, that his passport, impounded by the directorate be released.

The - had impounded Sehgal's passport following his detention on April 20 at the Indira Gandhi International Airport by the immigration authorities, minutes before he was to board a flight to London.

Immigration authorities had detained him, acting on a `Look Out Circular' issued against Sehgal, one of the proprietors of a private firm, Hamdaan Exports.

Appearing before Justice B.D. Ahmed, ED counsel A.K. Wali said if Sehgal's passport is released, he might flee the country.

Wali said the ED sleuths needed to interrogate Sehgal about his role in the oil scandal before releasing his passport.

The court asked the directorate to file a formal reply by July 2 to the petition filed by Sehgal.

Earlier Sehgal's passport had been impounded following his involvement in another offence in 2000. But soon after it was released by a CBI court on March 30, he tried to flee to London, said Wali.
