    Synopsis

    The action is being carried out under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and the raids are aimed to gather more evidence, official sources said.

    ED raids premises of Omkar Group, alleges slum rehab schemes misused
    New Delhi: The ED on Monday conducted raids on at least ten premises of a Mumbai-based realty group in connection with its money laundering probe in the alleged bank fraud case, official sources said. They said premises of Omkar Realtors and Developers, that includes 7 residential and 3 official in Mumbai, were searched by the central probe agency.

    Emails sent by to the realty group did not elicit a response.

    The action is being carried out under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and the raids are aimed to gather more evidence, they said.

    The Omkar Group is promoted by its chairman Kamal Kishore Gupta and Managing Director Babulal Varma, they said.

    The group is alleged to have misused various permissions given under the SRA (slum rehabilitation authority) schemes and is alleged to have "diverted" around Rs 450 crore taken by way of loan from Yes bank, ED sources said.

    Yes Bank co-promoter Rana Kapoor and and promoters Kapil Wadhawan and Dheeraj Wadhawan have been arrested in this case by the ED last year and they are in judicial custody at present.

    The ED had booked Kapoor, his family members and others under the PMLA after studying a CBI FIR that alleged that dubious multi-crore loans were given by Yes Bank to various entities in contravention of the law and in lieu of purported kickbacks given to the Kapoor family.
