ED summons Armaan Jain for the second time in Tops Grup money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Armaan Jain, grandson of late Bollywood actor and director Raj Kapoor, for the second time in an alleged money laundering case.

According to ANI, Jain has been asked to appear before the ED on Wednesday. The 30-year-old had been summoned earlier too, but he didn't appear.

A senior ED officer told The Free Press Journal that Jain did not appear as the family was grieving the death of actor Rajiv Kapoor.

The agency has also conducted searches at Jain’s residence in this regard. The agency has not divulged details in the case.

However, Jain's questioning is likely to be conducted based on the findings and questioning of Vihang Sarnaik, son of Shiv Sena legislator Pratap Sarnaik.

The Sarnaiks have been questioned by ED in a case involving alleged misappropriations in a contract bagged by Tops Grup with the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).
