New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested millionaire meat exporter Moin Qureshi in connection to a Rs 200 crore money laundering case.
As per sources, Qureshi was arrested late last night here after he was called for questioning in the case.
Qureshi is being probed for allegedly remitting funds through hawala channels to Dubai, London and a few other destinations in Europe.
The meat exporter is also facing probes by the I-T department and the CBI for alleged tax evasion, money laundering and corruption among others.
The ED had registered a case against Qureshi under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in 2015 for alleged illegal forex dealings and tax evasion. The agency had slapped additional charges against him under PMLA on the basis of the I-T department’s chargesheet.
In the latest FIR against him this year, former CBI Director A P Singh has also been named.
