Continuing its action to freeze the assets of drug smugglers, Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday attached the property of an accused in the Jagdish Bhola case.
The property carrying a total market value of Rs 4 crore belongs to accused Harpreet Singh. A shop-cum-office (SCO) in posh Urban Estate Market, a house in Officer Colony, and 7 acres in Patiala were attached under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, which empowers the ED to take such an action against drug smugglers. Harpreet Singh, alleged to be one of the main suppliers of synthetic drugs to cop-turned-don Bhola, was among 12 names on the ED charge sheet in 2014.
Looking into the assets of all accused in the Bhola racket, the directorate has also questioned several politicians and high-profile people. Last week, it attached the residential property of drug lord Bhola in SAS Nagar.
