In a money-laundering case investigation connected to the Delhi excise policy "scam," the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said on Wednesday that it has attached mansions in posh neighborhoods of Delhi and Mumbai, restaurants, 50 cars, and bank deposits totaling Rs 76.54 crore.

According to a statement from the agency, the properties belong to several people, including Vijay Nair, the arrested AAP communications in-charge, liquor industry executive Sameer Mahandru, his wife and company Indospirit Group, businessman Dinesh Arora, Arun Pillai, and Buddy Retail Pvt Limited director Amit Arora.

In accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, a temporary attachment order for the assets has been issued (PMLA).

A CBI FIR is the cause of the money laundering. In the CBI and ED allegations, Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, and other government excise officers were listed as defendants.
