ED to conduct joint investigation with SIT in NH-74 land scam case

With a special investigating team (SIT) already examining the Rs 300 crore scam in the NH-74 land acquisition and compensation process another central agency, enforcement directorate (ED), on Sunday joined the investigation process.

The ED is all set to register cases under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) based on FIR filed by SIT which also involves around a dozen farmers from Udham Singh Nagar district besides some bureaucrats and middlemen.

The ED will probe the ‘proceeds of crime’ and officials indicated that it will soon issue summons to the accused for questioning, said Ravindra Joshi, regional director of the department.
