Mumbai, August 6

Varsha Raut, wife of arrested Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, on Saturday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) here in connection with a money-laundering case linked to alleged irregularities in the redevelopment of a ‘chawl’ and related transactions.

The central agency had issued summons to Varsha earlier this week. Accordingly, she reached the ED office located at Ballard Estate in south Mumbai at 10.40am.

She is expected to be confronted with her husband, who is currently in the ED custody, and some other accused involved in the case.

Police personnel have been deployed in large numbers outside the ED office.

The central agency is conducting a probe linked to a Rs 1,034-crore alleged land scam related to the redevelopment of the Patra "chawl" in Mumbai's Goregaon area.

Sanjay Raut, a Rajya Sabha member, was arrested by the ED in the case on August 1 and a local court on Thursday sent him to further custody till August 8.
