ED attaches properties worth Rs. 11.15 cr of three people including Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s wife Varsha Raut in Patra Chawl project case
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) yesterday provisionally attached immovable properties worth Rs. 11.15 crores of three people, including Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s wife Varsha Raut, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in a case relating to irregularities in the redevelopment of the Patra Chawl project at Goregaon in Mumbai by M/s Guru Ashish Construction Pvt. Ltd, a subsidiary of Housing Development and Infrastructure Ltd (HDIL).
The other individuals whose assets have been provisionally attached are businessman Pravin Raut and Swapna Patkar, wife of Sujit Patkar who is a close associate of Sanjay Raut. The central agency had arrested Pravin Raut on February 4 under the PMLA.
The agency had also questioned Sanjay Raut’s wife Varsha Raut last year in connection with another money laundering case linked to the PMC Bank fraud case and for her purported links with Pravin Raut’s wife Madhuri.
