Armaan Jain's home raided in Mumbai on the same day his uncle Rajiv Kapoor died
Mumbai Mirror reports that the ED had raided Armaan Jain's residence on Tuesday, February 9, in connection with a money laundering case. ED officials had reportedly searched Jain's Altamount Road residence in South Mumbai where he lives with his wife Anissa Malhotra and mother Reema Jain and others.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the ED raided his house on Tuesday early morning, and after some time the family got a call about Rajiv Kapoor's demise (Reema's brother). The ED allowed Reema to attend the funeral and concluded the raid within a couple of hours, allowing Armaan to join his mother.
According to the report, Armaan's name came up when the ED was probing a money laundering case filed against Shiv Sena leader Pratap Sarnaik. Jain is reportedly a friend of Sarnaik's son Vihang, who is also under the lens.
Sources told India Today that ED had found some suspicious communication between Jain and Vihang. The search was conducted at Jain's residence, and he has been asked to join the investigation.
For the unversed, the ED is currently investigating the alleged Rs 175 crore money laundering case related to security firm Tops Grup that came into light last year.
A Mumbai Mirror report states that the ED wanted to question Armaan about the commission amount generated through Tops Grup and the MMRDA deal. However, Armaan's manager was unavailable for comment.
