After India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has now registered a money laundering case to probe the alleged payment of USD 5.7 million kickbacks in the 2008 Embraer aircraft deal.
Officials said the agency has filed a criminal complaint under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) based on a CBI FIR filed in this case last month.
