New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) will attach an estimated Rs50 crore of assets of Pune-based stud farm owner and alleged tax defaulter Hassan Ali Khan and his Kolkata-based associate Kashinath Tapuriah in a money laundering case, reports PTI.
The adjudicating authority of the agency based in Delhi recently endorsed an order of ED’s Mumbai office in this regard, paving the way for attachment of the duo’s immovable properties in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi and other assets, agency sources said.
As per the procedure, a regional unit of ED has to get endorsed its attachment order under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) from the adjudicating authority.
The attachment order, according to the sources, includes Mr Ali’s high-end imported cars, including Mercedes and Porsche, a flat in Pune’s posh Koregaon Park area and a residential building in Mumbai besides Tapuriah’s property on Prithviraj Road in Delhi.
Mr Khan, accused of money laundering, has a Rs62,000 crore tax liability and penalty proceedings are pending against him.
The total pending tax demand against him and his associates has been pegged at Rs89,000 crore by the Income Tax (I-T) Department.
Under the PMLA, the ED has powers to attach properties of a person as ‘proceeds of crime’ to obtain the amount that has been laundered, the sources said.
Mr Khan and Mr Tapuriah are now lodged in jail under judicial custody in Mumbai after they were arrested by the agency earlier this year for alleged contravention of anti-money laundering laws in India and abroad.
