Chhattisgarh: ED arrests Raipur mayor’s brother in PMLA case linked to liquor ‘scam’


PTI, May 6, 2023, 4:01 PM IST

The Enforcement Directorate on Saturday arrested Raipur Mayor Aijaz Dhebar’s elder brother Anwar in a money laundering case linked to the alleged liquor scam in Chhattisgarh, official sources said.

Aijaz Dhebar, 47, is a ruling party mayor in the Congress-ruled state.

His elder brother Anwar, who runs a liquor business, was taken into custody under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) from a Raipur hotel in the morning, the sources said.

In a security escort of the CRPF, he was produced before a court in Raipur for seeking his further custody, they said.

The money laundering case stems from an Income Tax department chargesheet filed earlier in connection with alleged tax evasion and irregularities in liquor trade in Chhattisgarh and some other states, the sources said.

The ED, sometime back, had conducted searches in this case in Chhattisgarh and some other locations.
