ED Attaches Shiv Sena Leader Sanjay Raut's Property In Connection With Rs 1,034 Crore Patra Chawl Land Scam Case
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday attached Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s properties in connection with the Rs 1,034 crore Patra Chawl land scam case.
The properties include a plot in Alibaug and one flat in Dadar, Mumbai, reports ANI.
The central financial probe agency issued a provisional attachment under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to freeze the land parcels (plots) and flat, officials said.
The attachment is linked to a money laundering probe linked to a Rs 1,034 crore worth land 'scam' related to the re-development of a 'chawl' in Mumbai.
The ED had arrested Maharashtra-based businessman Pravin Raut in this case in February and later filed a chargesheet too.
The agency had also questioned Sanjay Raut's wife Varsha Raut last year in connection with another money laundering case linked to the PMC Bank fraud case and for her purported links with Pravin Raut's wife Madhuri.
