The accused in the drugs had given statements which indicated that Bineesh had first met Anoop during a drugs party.
Bineesh Kodiyeri may or may not be involved in drug trafficking but if he has used his money then it is a criminal offence, argued the Enforcement Directorate (ED) at the Karnataka High Court.
Bineesh had argued the other day that the seizure of Anoop's debit card during the raid carried out at his residence in Thiruvananthapuram was part of a well-planned drama.
Bineesh, who was arrested on October 29 last year, is currently lodged at the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.
In its charge-sheet running into 120 pages, the ED says Bineesh and the accused in a drugs case had held discussions over securing some contract works of the Kerala government at a commission of 3-4 per cent.
The first three accused in the case are Anoop Mohammad from Kochi, Kannada serial actress D Anikha and Rijesh Raveendran from Thiruvilvamala who were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in August in the drugs case.
She stayed in a house at Muttada which belongs to Car Palace owner Abdul Latheef, who was described by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) as the business partner of Bineesh.
Bineesh is accused of funding a drug trade. Assets are restored only if it is proven in court that the money was not made through unlawful means.
The ED decided to attach the house after they probed the dealings of Kodiyeri's son, Bineesh. The son is now in jail in Bengaluru after he was arrested under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, last month.
