ED asks help from Singapore and Mauritius over Modi’s bank accounts


New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has asked Singapore and Mauritius to help them in to further tighten its case against Lalit Modi in the alleged Rs 125 crore money-laundering case related to allotment of broadcasting rights for IPL matches in 2009.

A process of issuing a letter of request under the Prevention of Money laundering Act to the two countries has begun, asking them to provide account details of companies and individuals suspected to be involved in money transactions.

After examining those details, the ED may ask for issuance of a red-corner notice against Modi or can ask for his extradition,” said a senior ED officer.
