The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached the bank deposits worth Rs 2.31 crore of a Manipur-based firm under the anti-money laundering law.
According to a statement issued by ED, the firm was “controlled” by certain entities, who were booked by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for anti-national activities.
The funds belong to Salai Agri Consortium Private Limited, a group company of Salai Group.
The money laundering case stems from a November 2019 FIR registered by the NIA against Yambem Biren, Narengbam Samarjit Singh, Tolenjow Singha, Wehengban Khelindra Singh and Brojendro Yulembam “for their prejudicial activities like waging war against the state, sedition, promoting disharmony, enmity or feeling of hatred among different groups etc. by declaring the independence of Manipur state from India”.
“Investigation revealed that Salai Group is controlled by the above-mentioned persons,” the ED said in a statement.
