According to reports, the Mumbai Police's Economic Offences Wing may expand its probe into the PMC Bank fraud case and the auditors of the Housing Development and Infrastructure Ltd (HDIL) might be included under it.

Meanwhile, on 7 October, the Enforcement Directorate conducted fresh searches at a posh bungalow located in Alibaug in Maharashtra in connection with the PMC Bank money laundering case.

According to officials the 22-room bungalow is linked to HDIL promoters Wadhawan's and has been sealed by the agency after the raid.

The agency has also 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 investigation of the case.

The regulatory action on the Punjab & Maharashtra Cooperative (PMC) Bank was imposed on account of major financial irregularities, failure of internal control and systems of the bank and wrong/under-reporting of its exposures under various off-site surveillance reports to RBI that came to it's notice last month.
