“The ED had registered the money laundering case on the basis of two FIRs registered by the CBI, Kolkata against Ray and his companies. Ray has defrauded and cheated the consortium of banks headed by Canara Bank,” the official said.
The CBI has already filed two charge sheets against Ray and others in the matter.
