Mumbai: The Directorate of Recovery (ED) in the capital Mumbai has seized assets worth Rs 11.15 crore from Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut and his close associates in connection with the Patra Chaal scam. The confiscated property includes a flat in Dadar in the name of Raut’s wife, as well as properties in Raigad and Palghar. So, now that the ED has confiscated it, will Raut have to leave that house in Dadar? Such a question is being raised. However, Rajan Gupta, partner at Alpha Rajan & Partners Law Firm, explained the process.
The ED, ie the Directorate of Enforcement, has taken major action in the last 2 to 3 years. Many of these cases are pending in the courts and some of them have been finally decided. However, after the ED confiscates the property, the person concerned can appeal to the court. Subsequently, in some cases, instructions have been given to return the property. The ED is currently cracking down on the relatives of Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut and Delhi government minister Satyendra Jain. Therefore, it is possible to know how to proceed with this action.
The property of an individual or organization is brought under heel by the ED under the PMLA Act. After that, the case goes to court. However, can the property be used by the person or organization concerned after the ED has taken action? Such a question has been asked by many. So, yes, it is real estate. It can be used personally or commercially. However, this property cannot be bought or sold. Also, the property cannot be transferred in the name of another person, said Rajan Gupta. That is why Sanjay Raut can use his house in Dadar.
ED confiscated any assets
The land in Palghar district in the name of Praveen Raut, along with 8 plots at Kihim Beach in Alibag in the name of Raut’s wife Varsha Raut and Swapna Patkar in the name of both Raut, were brought to the heel by the ED. Raut is close to Sujit Patkar’s wife Swapna Patkar. Registration in the purchase transaction of 8 plots at Kihim Beach, other matters have been done in cash.
Not afraid of action – Raut
I am not afraid of the BJP taking action against the ED for confiscating my house and land. Even if 1 rupee is illegal, the property will be donated to BJP. Try to bring BJP to power in Maharashtra with Sena otherwise I will have to face serious consequences, they threatened me. Action sessions will be held in Maharashtra soon.
