The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday conducted searches on the premises of realtor EMMAR MGF in connection with the multi-crore illegal Hawala and investment case involving former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda.
The search followed the ED reportedly finding certain documents that showed Koda's associates on the board of certain EMAAR group companies, ED sources said.
EMAAR MGF is a joint venture between Dubai-based EMAAR Properties and India's MGF Development.
Sources said one of Koda's associates, Vikash Sinha, who is in judicial custody, has told the agency that he and some others had invested on behalf of Koda in the same companies. When contacted, an Emaar MGF spokesperson did not offer any comments immediately.
