The Enforcement Directorate on Monday attached properties worth several crores of rupees belonging to people accused in the Saradha scam, including former union minister Matang Sinh.
According to an ED source, properties both moveable and immoveable, spread across Assam, West Bengal and Mumbai were seized under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
"The seized properties belong to Matang Sinh, Manoranjana Sinh and painter Shuvaprasanna," said the source.
While both Sinh and his estranged wife Manoranjana were arrested by the CBI for their alleged complicity in the multi-crore-rupee scam, Shuvaprasanna has been grilled by probe agencies.
Probing the money trail in the scam, the ED has so far attached assets of the Saradha Group worth several hundred crore rupees.
