The Enforcement Directorate has arrested a school teacher and a middleman in Delhi who allegedly defrauded a man on the pretext of bailing him out in a money laundering case linked to the China-linked mobile phone loan app fraud. Jitendra Prasad and Dinesh Singh Kushwaha were taken into custody by the Federal Investigation Agency on February 25 and a Delhi court later returned them to ED. The ED said in a statement that Jitendra Prasad was an intermediary and that Kushwaha worked as a Hindi teacher at a school in Delhi.

The agency said in a statement that these people had received Rs 2.6 crore from Vaibhav Deepak Shah, an accused in the Powerbank app case, through the hawala channel under the pretext of letting ED do their job. The ED first lodged a complaint with the special cell of the Delhi Police and later registered his case against the duo under criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The Enforcement Directorate took serious note of the incident and searched the premises of both individuals and subsequently arrested them for their involvement in handling the proceeds of crime.

The ED said Rs 47.5 lakh in cash, forged summonses/notices, duplicate official stamps and digital records related to large cash transactions were recovered from Prasad’s residence during the raids. The investigation into the misappropriation of public funds of more than Rs 250 crore by a Chinese national in the PowerBank app case is ongoing.
