According to customs officials, a 56-year-old woman was detained in a raid at a flat last week. The rented flat is reportedly being used to run a money laundering racket. Customs officials have detained five persons including a woman from the spot. Four more people have been arrested after this. Officials have seized cash worth Rs 30 crore and several counting machines, bank cards and confidential documents from the spot. The head of the Crime Investigation Bureau said that this is the biggest money laundering case ever.
According to the investigation department, this syndicate had set up 11 shell companies. He had lured many with rewards to open business and personal bank accounts. Then they used their accounts to keep black money. Between January 2020 and December 2022, more than 7,600 transactions were made through this account. During this time, as many as 487 billion rupees were transacted.
