ED Arrests Unitech Promoters Sanjay Chandra And Ajay Chandra In Money Laundering Case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested Unitech promoters Sanjay Chandra and Ajay Chandra in a money laundering case.

The arrest followed after the Supreme Court allowed the ED to carry out custodial interrogation of the Chandras on basis of new evidence.

Chandras were brought from Mumbai jail to Delhi on Monday evening and formally arrested. They were shifted to Mumbai jails after the ED told the apex court that the brothers were running an “underground office” from Tihar Jail.

The Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana prepared a report which led to the filing of the corruption case against 37 Tihar Jail officials.

According to reports, the probe agency will be producing them before a special court on Tuesday and seeking further custodial remand.

ED has accused Unitech Group of transferring around Rs 347.5 crores to Carnoustie Group which in turn purchased immovable and movable assets in NCR, across India and abroad. The charge sheet was filed in the first week of December.

The ED has attached assets worth Rs 18.14 crore belonging to two Benami entities of erstwhile Unitech Group promoters Ajay Chandra and Sanjay Chandra.

The attached properties include one multiplex in Gurugram, six commercial properties in Gurugram and Lucknow and 24 bank accounts and fixed deposit receipts, the agency said.

These assets are in the name of Enova Facility Management Services Pvt Ltd and FNM property Services Pvt Ltd which are Benami entities of Chandras, said the ED.

The ED initiated a money-laundering investigation on the basis of various FIRs filed by homebuyers against Unitech Group and its promoters by Delhi Police and the Central Bureau of Investigation.

“Total proceeds of crime detected by the ED, in this case, is Rs,638.43 crore,” ED had said.
