The news of Raj Kundra's alleged involvement in the Rs 6600 crore bitcoin Ponzi scam has shocked the nation. What's equally shocking is that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty Kundra's assets worth Rs 98 crore as part of the money laundering investigation. ED has brought into its net one of Kundra family's residential flat in Mumbai, a bungalow in Pune and equity shares as well.

Why did ED bring Raj Kundra under its radar

As per reports, Raj Kundra received 285 Bitcoins from the mastermind of Bitcoin Ponzi scam to start bitcoin mining in Ukraine. The bitcoins were sourced from gullible investors and Kundra is said to still have them in possession valued at Rs 150 cr. Raj Kundra's lawyer has said that there is no prima facie case made against Shilpa Shetty Kundra or Raj Kundra.
