The ED is probing alleged financial irregularities under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after it filed a criminal case recently.

A private business jet, Dassault Falcon 200 owned by accused Rakesh Wadhawan of HDIL was earlier seized by the agency.

The business jet was parked in the hangar at the Mumbai airport. Before this, a Bombardier Challenger 300 belonging to the HDIL directors was seized by the agency, the report said.

It had earlier seized Rs 60 crore worth jewellery, a business jet, 15 cars, two fixed deposits worth Rs 1.5 crore and Rs 10 crore in connection with the case.

The ED case is based on an FIR filed by the Economic Offences Wing of Mumbai police.

The agency and Mumbai police case, based on a complaint by an RBI-appointed administrator, is against the former bank management and promoters of HDIL.

The complaint was filed last week on charges of forgery, cheating and criminal conspiracy against the officials.
