The new decision of the Enforcement Directorate is likely to spell trouble for senior NCP leaders Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare, both named in the Rs. 70, 000 Crore irrigation scam of Maharashtra.
The ED is waiting for a FIR to be filed by the Anti Corruption Bureau following which the department will look into the alleged financial irregularities and transactions of the duo.
The decision was taken after discussions between the ED and ACB. This is being seen as one of the promises kept by the BJP who had promised a detailed enquiry into the irrigation scam during elections.
