He said he will make a full disclosure of the case if he was granted pardon.
Saxena also told the court that he had moved the application on his free will.
He was granted bail on Monday. The ED did not oppose Saxena’s bail plea on medical grounds.
Saxena told the court that he was suffering from radiating back pain, numbness and heaviness in legs along with other ailments.
United Arab Emirates (UAE) security agencies picked Saxena from his Dubai residence on January 30 and extradited him to India that night.
According to the ED, in connivance with lawyer Gautam Khaitan, Saxena provided a corporate structure across the globe to laundered money for payment to various political leaders, bureaucrats and Indian Air Force officials to influence the contract for supplying 12 VVIP helicopters in favour of AgustaWestland.
Saxena’s name was mentioned in a chargesheet filed against his wife Shivani, who has been out on bail after being arrested by the ED.
