ED arrests Bhujbal

Submitted by Kumuda on Thu, 2016-05-05 12:08 Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate ( ED) on Thursday arrested Chhagan Bhujbal's associate and chartered accountant Sunil Naik in connection with the money laundering case. The special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court had earlier issued a non-bailable warrant against Naik, who was the CA at Bhujbal- owned Mumbai Education Trust (MET) at Bandra. The Enforcement Directorate is probing Bhujbal, his son Pankaj and nephew Sameer in the case concerning a contract the former allegedly gave a builder in 2005 without inviting tenders when he was the state PWD minister. Earlier, a special trial court issued a non-bailable warrant against Pankaj Bhujbal and 28 others accused in a Rs. 800 crore money laundering case. The Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau had earlier filed two FIRs against the Bhujbals and others under the provisions of the PMLA to probe the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.
