After Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigated Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, the investigation agency has summoned MNS leader Nitin Sardesai in connection with the Kohinoor building case. Sardesai is considered a close aide to Raj Thackeray and has served as an MLA.

Earlier, while investigating the alleged irregularities in loan and equity investment made by Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) in Kohinoor CTNL, ED had questioned Unmesh Joshi, son of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Manohar Joshi, and Raj Thackeray.

Kohinoor CTNL, the company founded by Unmesh Joshi, is constructing the Kohinoor Square in Dadar West. Moreover, Thackeray was involved in buying Kohinoor Mill No 3, which the ED is investigating. 

However, in 2008, IL&FS pulled out of the deal and sold its shares for ₹90 crore while recording a loss of 135 crore. In the same year, Raj Thackeray's Matoshree realtors also exited the deal after selling its shares.
