New Delhi, July 5

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested real estate firm IREO’s owner and Managing Director Lalit Goyal in a money laundering case from Gurugram. 

Goyal has been booked under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in a case linked to alleged bribery of a now-suspended special judge based in Panchkula.

The Haryana Anti-Corruption Bureau has booked Goyal in April alongwith former special CBI-ED judge Sudhir Parmar, who was posted in Panchkula, his nephew Ajay Parmar, and Roop Kumar Bansal, the promoter of another realty group M3M, and others. the case was later taken over by ED. 

The ED has arrested Ajay Parmar, the nephew of Sudhir Parmar, and two directors and ‘key managerial persons’ of the M3M group– Basant Bansal and Pankaj Bansal.

The investigation showed that Parmar was showing “favouritism” to the accused, namely Roop Kumar Bansal, his brother Basant Bansal and IREO’s Lalit Goyal in the criminal cases of the ED and other cases of the CBI pending against them in his court. 

Goyal was arrested by the ED in 2021 in an another money laundering investigation. This is the fourth arrest made by the agency in this case in less than a month.
