The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday arrested Vihang Sarnaik, son of Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik, in an alleged money laundering case.
The arrest took place after the ED conducted raids at 10 premises linked to Sarnaik, including his residence at Thane in the morning.
The searches are being conducted on the Tops group, its promoters, and related people, including some politicians.
Pratap Sarnaik is the MLA from the Ovala-Majiwada Vidhan Sabha constituency in Thane. He is also Shiv Sena’s Maharashtra spokesperson and the communication leader for the Mira-Bhayandar area.
