ED is further preparing to free in Assam under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The attached assets include a resort and a pricey land in Guwahati, a plot in Dhubri and a biogas plant in Tripura, officials said adding all these assets were allegedly purchased by scam kingpin and Saradha Chairman Sudipta Sen using tainted money.

The ED has so far attached a total of about Rs 146 crore worth of assets so far in the case. The charge sheet is expected by next month. The agency resgistered separate FIRs to probe the scam in Assam.
