Mumbai, November 24
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided premises linked to Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik in Maharashtra on Tuesday in connection with a money laundering case being probed against a security service provider company and others, official sources said.
His party called the raids a “political vendetta” and said the Maharashtra government or its leaders will not surrender to pressure from anyone.
Sources said the searches are being conducted by the central agency at 10 locations in Mumbai and neighbouring Thane.
CRPF personnel were seen assisting ED sleuths during the operation that was launched early morning.”The searches are being conducted on the Tops group (a company in the business of providing security) promoters and related people, including some politicians,” an official source said. — PTI
