Mumbai: A week after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) revealed Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel’s deals with late Iqbal Mirchi, a close aide of Pakistan-based underworld don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, the agency on Tuesday said it has arrested Humayun Merchant, who handled Mirchi’s real estate businesses.

A senior Enforcement Directorate source said Merchant was arrested under the sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002 and will be produced before a Mumbai court later in the day.

The source said Merchant was arrested after several property deals, including those related to Patel, on behalf of Mirchi and his family members were found routed through him. (IANS)
