The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday attached a Gurgaon flat belonging to former Haryana chief minister OP Chautala under money laundering laws and is preparing to attach more assets acquired by him “illegally and beyond his known source of income” to the tune of Rs 6 crore.

Recently convicted in the Junior Basic Trained (JBT) Teachers’ recruitment scam, this is the first attachment order against the five-time CM by the agency. The flat located in Sector 28 of Tech-city, under Haryana Jan Pratinidhi Cooperative Group Housing Society scheme, is estimated to be worth about Rs 47 lakh.

The ED is probing the politician and his associates under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after it registered a case in this regard based on a CBI charge sheet filed in the same case.
