Khan was able to escape his residence during the operation, but the ED found more over Rs 17 crore in cash. To count the money that was found, eight cash counting devices were brought.

The ED sleuths said that Amir Khan, the younger son of Naser Ahmed Khan, who owns a transport company, had introduced a mobile gambling application called E-Nuggets that initially paid investors a fee and permitted easy withdrawal of their wallet balance.

Users soon started making larger investments in the aim of receiving higher commissions. According to regulators, after consumers had paid a sizable sum, withdrawals were prohibited on a variety of grounds. Following that, they claimed that all user data, including profile data, was deleted from the app’s servers.

Six locations in Kolkata were subject to an ED raid conducted in accordance with the PMLA’s requirements. Based on a complaint made by the Federal Bank authorities against Khan and others on February 15, 2021, a case was opened at the Park Street police station. Khan was taken into custody on Friday night and transferred to Kolkata on transit remand on Saturday morning.
