ED Arrests Two in Delhi Jal Board Money Laundering Case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested a retired chief engineer, Jagdish Kumar Arora, and contractor Anil Kumar Aggarwal in connection with a money laundering probe into alleged irregularities in the tendering process of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB). The arrests were made under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The ED had conducted raids in July of the previous year in relation to this case. The investigation focuses on irregularities in the DJB’s tendering process, with criminal cases stemming from FIRs filed by the CBI and the Anti-Corruption Branch of the Delhi government. The allegations involve providing “undue advantage” to NKG Infrastructure Limited and awarding tenders for various projects.
