ED summons industrialist Raj Kundra in Money Laundering Case

Enforcement Directorate (ED) informed that the investigation against Raj Kundra is being conducted under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA)


On Monday, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned businessman Raj Kundra, husband of actress Shilpa Shetty, in connection with its money laundering probe involving gangster Iqbal Mirchi, who died in 2013.

Officials said that Kundra has been asked to appear before the investigating officer of the case in Mumbai on Monday and his statement is expected to be recorded. Currently, an investigation is being conducted under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Kundra.

ED, the institute that investigates financial crimes, is looking at Kundra's purported dealings with Ranjeet Bindra and a firm named Bastian Hospitality in connection with the case. Previously, Bindra was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in the case and later, Kundra had denied any wrongdoing. On the other hand, ED has filed a criminal case against Iqbal Mirchi and his family to investigate money laundering charges for alleged illegal dealings in purchase and sale of costly real estate assets in Mumbai.

Iqbal Mirchi was a close associate of Underworld gangster, Dawood Ibrahim in drug trafficking and extortion crimes. Mirchi died of a heart attack in 2013 in London. The case is based on multiple Mumbai Police FIRs and the Enforcement Directorate has conducted multiple raids in this case over the last few months.
