Sameer Bhujbal, nephew of senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal, who was arrested from Mumbai in connection with a money laundering case was been sent to Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) custody till February 8.
Sameer was arrested by ED late last night after questioning him for 6 hours.
Meanwhile, NCP workers across Maharashtra held protests and agitations against Maharashtra Government for targeting Bhujbals.
Calling the arrest of Sameer Bhujbal a politically motivated stunt, the party workers courted arrests at many locations.
Earlier on Monday, the ED conducted searches on at least nine properties held by Chhagan Bhujbal and his family members.
A team of 20 ED officers of the Mumbai zonal unit conducted the operation in connection with 11 different allegations of money laundering and land grabbing including the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan construction scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.
