The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday conducted searches at a person's premises, who is claimed to have links with Robert Vadra, in connection with its money laundering probe.

The probe relates to a land grab case in Rajasthan's Bikaner.

The searches were conducted at Mahesh Nagar's premises in Haryana's Faridabad, officials said. Nagar is claimed to be associated with Ms Skylight Hospitality Private Limited, which has links with Vadra.

The ED has registered a money laundering case in connection with the land grab case based on 18 FIRs filed by Rajasthan Police in August 2016 after the local tehsildar filed a complaint.

It came after the ED suspected that money was laundered in connection with the case of transfer of government land in 34 villages of Bikaner, to be used for expanding the army's firing range in the area, to private persons using "forged and fabricated documents".

However, the ED has not mentioned Vadra's name in its FIR filed under the PMLA. The FIR names some Rajasthan government officials and the "land mafia".

The ED had attached assets worth Rs 1.18 crore of government officials and others in connection with the case.

In December last year, the ED had arrested Ashok Kumar, a close associate of Nagar, and another person, Jaiprakash Bagarwa. The agency had searched the premises of both Kumar and Nagar in April last year.
