New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday said that it has attached properties worth Rs 751.9 crore in a money-laundering case against Congress-linked AJL-National Herald.
The seized properties were located across many cities, including Lucknow, Delhi and Mumbai.
Some of the properties also belonged to Young Indian Limited (YIL), a non-profit organization launched in 2010 with Rahul Gandhi as the director. The ED alleged that these properties were the “proceeds of crime.”
According to the ED sources, the attached property includes Nehru Bhavan in Lucknow and the National Herald Houses in Delhi and Mumbai.
Reacting to the development, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said on X, “Reports of attachment of AJL properties by ED reflects their desperation to divert attention from certain defeat in the ongoing elections in each state.”
The ED has already interrogated Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the case.
