Coal scam: ED attaches fresh assets worth Rs 101 crore of Maharashtra firm

Enforcement Directorate

Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached fresh assets worth Rs 101 crore of a Maharashtra-based firm in connection with its money laundering probe in the coal scam case.

ED said that it issued a provisional order for attachment of an office building worth 80 crore rupees at the integrated steel plant of Jayaswal Neco Industries Limited in the Siltara area of Raipur in Chhattisgarh and land worth 21 crore rupees in Bilaspur district.

The ED had booked a criminal case against the firm and others to probe money laundering charges, on the basis of an FIR lodged by CBI to probe alleged irregularities in the coal blocks allocation. The CBI had earlier filed a charge sheet against the firm.

An attachment order issued by the agency under the PMLA is aimed at depriving the accused of taking benefits of their ill-gotten wealth and it is confirmed by the adjudicating authority of the PMLA within 180 days.
