The agency issued a provisional order under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act for attachment of agricultural land and bungalow in Kodaikanal and Ooty in Tamil Nadu and a Rs 16-crore flat in south Delhi’s posh Jorbagh locality. Karti, the ED said, has a 50 per cent share in the property.
In the UK, the ED attached a Rs 8.67-crore cottage and house in Somerset and a tennis club valued at over Rs 14.57 crore located in Barcelona.
Reacting to it, Karti tweeted, “A bizarre and outlandish provisional attachment order which is not based on law of facts but on crazy conjectures. This is meant only to grab headlines.” Meanwhile, a consulting firm allegedly linked to Karti moved the Madras HC challenging the ‘freezing’ of its accounts by the ED in the INX case.
