The Enforcement Directorate may register a money laundering case against the Maran brothers and others in connection with the controversial Aircel-Maxis deal case in which CBI has alleged former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran had received Rs 547 crore as bribe.

CBI on Monday carried out searches at the residences of Dayanidhi and nine other locations after registering a case against him, his brother Kalanithi Maran, SUN Direct TV Pvt director, chairman of Maxis Communication T Ananda Krishnan, senior executive of Astro All Asia Network and Maxis Ralph Marshall and three companies Astro All Asia Networks, Sun Direct TV and Maxis Communications.

ED sources privy to the development said the CBI FIR is under review and the agency may register its Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) equivalent to a police complaint under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) provisions.
