The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has intensified its investigation in the alleged money laundering case involving Hero MotoCorp Chairman and Managing Director Pawan Kumar Munjal. The ED recently seized three immovable properties in Delhi, estimated to be worth around ₹25 crore, as part of its ongoing investigation. This latest move by the ED is linked to the investigation into a high-profile money laundering case, which is casting a shadow over Munjal and his business empire. ED had been closely investigating the money laundering allegations against Pawan Munjal for some time. This action, including attachment of assets, is a significant development in the ongoing investigation. The total value of three Delhi properties recently seized by ED is around ₹25 crore. It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that Munjal has faced such action, assets totaling ₹50 crore have already been seized in connection with the investigation.

Money laundering allegations against Pawan Munjal have raised serious concerns among the industry and financial regulators. The ED is investigating Munjal’s financial transactions and assets to find out if any of them are linked to illegal money flows. Money laundering charges typically involve the process of concealing the origin of illegally obtained funds and making them appear legitimate through complex financial transactions.
