Congress leader Baba Siddique got into a little trouble with the 'Enforcement Directorate' (ED). Multiple Mumbai locations have been raided with a money laundering probe. The development scheme of slums in suburban Bandra has seen suspicious monetary involvement of Rs 100 crore.
Baba Siddique and his associate builder, Rafique Maqbul Qureshi have been accused in this scam. They have been accused of forging false documents for monetary benefits.
As per rules, whenever a plot is developed in a slum area, a portion of it is reserved for the slum-dwellers. However, it has been alleged that the fraud was orchestrated with the help of false documents
During these raids, it seems like there have been monetary transactions between Qureshi’s office and Siddique’s office. The raids were conducted under ‘Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002’
