Tushar V Shah, a member of the adjudicating authority of the PMLA, issued an order stating, “I find that the immovable properties provisionally attached are involved in money laundering.”

Shah furthered by confirming the continuation of attachment of these properties for at least the next ninety days or till the case is sub-judice or there is an order for confiscation by the special court pertaining to these properties.
