The Enforcement Directorate raided several locations in the country, including the whereabouts of the former Chief Secretary of Madhya Pradesh, in a money laundering case involving an alleged e-tender worth Rs 3,000 crore in Madhya Pradesh.
Official sources said that the agency had launched searches at the suspects' locations earlier this week to gather evidence in the case. Sources said that at least 15-16 bases in Bhopal, Hyderabad, and Bangalore were raided. Raids continued in many places on Thursday.
The ED had filed a criminal case last year in the case of rigging on the government's e-tender portal to get the tender during the BJP government. The case was first filed by the Economic Offenses Wing when Kamal Nath-led Congress was in power last year.
