ED seizes Audi car, Rs 85L cash after raids on Punjab-based real estate group

Highlights

  • The raids were conducted in a case linked to alleged cheating of homebuyers
  • An FIR was earlier filed with the Punjab Police, against the accused
  • In the FIR, the builders were accused of duping and cheating homebuyers/investors

The Enforcement Directorate conducted raids against a Punjab-based real estate group in connection with a money laundering case. The raids were conducted in a case linked to the alleged cheating of homebuyers, the ED said on Tuesday.

The searches were carried out on June 3 against Gupta Builders and Promoters Pvt. Ltd., its directors Satish Gupta, Pardeep Gupta, their associates Bajwa Developers Ltd, Kumar Builders, Vinmehta Films Pvt. Ltd. and residences of their directors Jarnail Singh Bajwa, Navraj Mittal, Vishal Garg and others at 19 locations in Chandigarh, Ambala, Panchkula, Mohali and Delhi, it said in a statement.

Following the searches, the agency seized an Audi car, Rs 85 lakh in cash and documents.

An FIR was earlier filed with the Punjab Police, against the accused who are alleged to have "duped and cheated" homebuyers/investors by neither delivering flats, plots, commercial units nor returning their amount to the tune of Rs 325 crore in connivance with various other persons.  

The probe found that the "funds received from homebuyers for development of residential and commercial projects were siphoned off by directors of the company in connivance with their associates and others and have been invested in the purchase of various personal assets."

"Incriminating documents pertaining to movable and immovable properties, unaccounted cash of Rs 85 lakh and a Audi Q7 car have been seized (during the raids)," the agency said.
