Money laundering case: ED attaches Rs 472 cr assets

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate today said it has attached assets worth Rs 472 crore, including one in Australia, in connection with its money laundering probe in the PACL ponzi scam case.

The ED had registered a criminal case against the firm in 2015 based on a CBI FIR against the group, its directors and officials.

"Properties worth Rs 472 crore have been attached under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in PACL ponzi scam operated by Nirmal Singh Bhangoo. The properties include MiiResorts Group 1 Pty Ltd and Sanctuary Cove properties in Australia," it said.

PACL is being probed by multiple agencies.
