In fresh trouble for Balkrishna, aide of yoga guru Ramdev, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a case against him under stringent sections of anti-money laundering laws.
The agency registered the case acting on the CBI's FIR which charged Balkrishna with violations of the Passport Act. Sources said the ED suspects that Balkrishna, who has been looking after various trusts run by Ramdev, could have parked the alleged laundered money abroad using the forged passport as claimed by the CBI.
"The case has been registered under Section 4 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and a probe into Balkrishna's transactions abroad are now underway," said a top ED official.
The ED is planning to question Balkrishna who was released on bail after a month in jail for allegedly submitting fake documents to obtain an Indian passport.
