ED took big action
The ED took three other PFI functionaries into custody from Delhi, including Parvez Ahmed, Mohammad Ilyas and Abdul Muqeet. The agency has questioned all of them several times since the money laundering probe against PFI began in 2018.

Raids took place last year too
According to the ED, the premises of PFI member Shafiq Payeth were also raided by the agency last year after his investments in real estate businesses and his diversion in PFI were exposed. “Over Rs 120 crore has been deposited in the accounts of PFIs and related entities in the last few years and a substantial part of this has been deposited from unknown and dubious sources in the country as well as abroad,” the agency said.
