Demonetised Currency Devil Tandon has been Arrested ED has arrested Delhi lawyer Rohit Tandon
The ED has arrested controversial lawyer Rohit Tandon here in connection with a money laundering probe in a case of seizure of Rs 13.6 crore after police raided a law firm premises as part of an anti-black money operation post demonetisation.
He was placed under arrest late last night under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and will be produced in a court for further custody.
Tandon was allegedly instrumental in the illegal conversion of demonetised currency worth about Rs 60 crore in purported connivance with Kolkata-based businessman Paras Mal Lodha and arrested Kotak Bank manager in Delhi Ashish Kumar.
Tandon’s case pertains to an operation of Delhi Police’s Crime Branch and the Income Tax department earlier this month when the agencies had seized Rs 13.6 crore, of which Rs 2.6 crore was in new currency, allegedly from a law firm here that he is associated with.
The ED had booked a PMLA case against him based on the police FIR.
The lawyer was earlier separately searched by the tax department where it was said that he declared undisclosed income worth over Rs 125 crore to the taxman.
