New Delhi, June 19 (IANS) The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday arrested two former top officials of the IL&FS under its money-laundering probe into alleged financial irregularities of the crisis-hit firm.
A senior ED official told IANS the agency has arrested Arun Saha, a former Joint Director of IL&FS Financial Services, and Karunakaran Ramchand, the former Managing Director, IL&FS Transportation Networks (ITNL), from Mumbai.
Both of them were involved in various illegal activities detrimental to IL&FS, the official said.
