The Enforcement Directorate has arrested Trinamool Congress (TMC) spokesperson Saket Gokhale in a money laundering case related to alleged irregularities in a crowd funding initiative. Official sources gave this information on Wednesday. Gokhale was taken into custody under criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in Ahmedabad, where he is lodged in judicial custody in connection with the Gujarat Police case. He told that the federal agency will produce him before the local court to remind him.

The Gujarat police arrested Gokhale from Delhi on December 29 in connection with alleged misappropriation of funds collected through crowd-funding. Earlier in December, the Gujarat police arrested him twice for allegedly spreading fake news about the expenses incurred on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Morbi after a bridge collapse tragedy.
