ED raids dubious media portal NewsClick offices in connection with a money laundering case

The dubious news portal, NewsClick.in was founded in 2009 by senior journalist Prabir Purkayastha.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday morning conducted raids the office premises and the residences of several officials and journalists associated with NewsClick.in, a news media portal is most famously known for peddling fake stories. The raids were reportedly made in connection with a money laundering case pertaining to foreign funding.

According to several reports, residences of NewsClick.in owner Prabir Purkayastha and editor Pranjal were also raided by the Enforcement Directorate. The Hindu reported that the organisation’s office in Delhi’s Saidulajab was also raided.

The raids were reportedly related to a money laundering case and the agency was investigating the funding the organisation had received from “dubious companies” abroad.

Propagandist masquerading as journalist Abhisar Sharma, who hosts two YouTube programmes for NewsClick.in, also informed about the raids on Twitter.

The dubious news portal, NewsClick.in was founded in 2009 by senior journalist Prabir Purkayastha. It is known for exhibiting left-leaning bias and by that very fact, is also overly critical of the Modi government.
