Ranbir, Kareena Kapoor's cousin Armaan Jain summoned by ED in money laundering case: Report

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has reportedly summoned Ranbir Kapoor's cousin Armaan Jain in connection with a money laundering case lodged against Shiv Sena leader Pratap Sarnaik.

Armaan Jain is the son of Rima Jain, sister of Rishi and Randhir Kapoor.

According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Armaan Jain's name cropped up during the agency's probe in the money laundering case. The ED, on Tuesday, raided his Mumbai residence, hours before the news of his uncle Rajiv Kapoor's demise broke.

Rima Jian was reportedly allowed to go to her brother's place, however, the raid went on for a few more hours. After the raid concluded, Armaan was permitted to leave for the funeral.

For the unversed, Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik was summoned by the ED in connection with an alleged money laundering case related to a private firm. Later, his two sons -- Purvesh Sarnaik and Vihang Sarnaik were also summoned.

The ED had reportedly found some evidence of suspicious transactions between the private firm, Top Securities Group and Sarnaik.

The ED had questioned Vihang for five hours on November 24 after detaining him during the raids on the premises of Sarnaik's house and the private firm.

The economic offences watchdog has already arrested a close aide of Sarnaik, Amit Chandole, the promoter of the Tops Securities Group, in the case. Chandole was arrested during the November 24 searches at around 10 places in Mumbai and Thane, including those related to the Top Securities Group promoters and some politicians.
