Patra Chawl Scam: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s wife summoned by ED

Mumbai: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s problems continue to grow as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) tightens its noose around him. On Thursday, the ED summoned his wife in connection to the investigations into the Patra Chawl scam.

Sanjay Raut had suffered a big setback earlier on Thursday. The ED custody of the Shiv Sena leader in the money laundering case related to the Patra Chawl scam has been extended till August 8.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today produced the arrested Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court, after which the court pronounced its verdict. Sanjay Raut was arrested on Sunday midnight in connection with alleged financial irregularities in financial asset transactions.

Earlier ED custody was sought for eight days

The ED on Monday produced Raut before PMLA court judge MG Deshpande and sought his remand for eight days. But the court sent the Shiv Sena leader to the agency’s custody till August 4. The agency had told the court on Monday that Raut and his family had received illegal money of over Rs 1 crore from alleged irregularities in the housing redevelopment project.
