The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday attached immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore of five firms and three women under Prevention of Money Laundering Act pertaining to a disproportionate assets case.

A senior ED official said that the land belongs to Akinchan Developers Pvt. Ltd, Indo Metal impex Pvt Ltd, Paryas Infosolutions Pvt. Ltd, Manglayatan Projects Pvt. Ltd, J.J. Ideal Estate Pvt. Ltd, and three women — Swati Jain, Sushila Jain and Indu Jain.

While investigating the case, the ED learned that during 2015-16, when Jain was a public servant, the above mentioned companies beneficially owned and controlled by him received accommodation entries to the tune of Rs 4.81 crore from shell companies against cash transferred to Kolkata based entry operators through Hawala route.

These amounts were utilised for direct purchase of land or for the repayment of loan taken for purchase of agricultural land in and around Delhi. Accordingly, immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore in the form of land belonging to the accused and their companies were attached under section 5 of PMLA,” said the official.

Further investigation in the matter is underway.
