Kolkata, After Mamata Banerjee government ministers and their party leaders, the Enforcement Directorate has now raided six locations of promoters of the mobile gaming app company in Kolkata. During this, Rs 17 crore in cash was seized. The ED conducted the raids in connection with the probe into the money laundering case. Counting of notes was going on till late evening but in the day ED released a photo showing bundles of notes. It contained bundles of two thousand, five hundred and two hundred rupees notes.
The ED’s action has taken place at the locations of mobile gaming app company ‘E Nuggets’ and its promoter Aamir Khan and others. The ED said that Federal Bank had first filed a complaint against the company in a Kolkata court. After this, in February 2021, Kolkata Police registered an FIR against the company and its promoters. On Saturday, the ED conducted raids in Kolkata’s Park Street, McLeod Street, Garden Reach and Mominpur since morning. The ED teams along with the Central Security Force personnel carried out the search operation.
The ED alleged that Aamir Khan had launched the mobile gaming app e-nuggets to cheat people. Initially, the company paid commission to the users. The money that came in people’s wallets also came out easily. This increased people’s trust in the company and people started investing large sums of money for higher commissions. When the company got a huge amount from the people, then the withdrawal of money from this app was suddenly stopped.
