The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday conducted raids at residences of businessmen allegedly associated with absconding Trinamool Congress leader Shajahan Sheikh in connection with an old case of fraudulent land grab, a senior officer said.


Raids and search operations were started by the ED early Friday morning at five different places in and around the city including Howrah, Bijoygarh and Birati, he said.


“These raids are in connection with an old case of fraudulent land grab against Shajahan Sheikh and his associates. These people were involved in fish businesses with Shajahan. We are looking for a few specific documents”, the officer said.


The ECIR is generally filed by the ED as the case information report. It is similar to a first information report (FIR) in criminal cases, he explained.

ED officials accompanied by a huge number of central forces started searches at an address in Howrah’s Haldarpara at the residence of fish trader named Parthapratim Sengupta, the officer said.

Raids are underway at four places including the house of local businessman Arun Sengupta and at the residence of Arun Shome in the southern part of the city’s Bijoygarh area
