The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday raided at least five locations linked to Congress leader Baba Siddique, including his residence in suburban Bandra. The raids are believed to be in connection with a Rs 400 crore Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) scam involving a plot in Bandra. The Bandra Police have registered an FIR naming Siddique in the purported scam. Officials are looking into the financial dealings of Pyramid Developers, allegedly a front of Siddique.

More details are awaited.

            Why are NCP leaders spared? They are of no use to the BJP in rarest thoughts.

                    [DEMONETIZATION gave the Govt a huge bonanza of 10 trillion - 3 trillion more than the estimated & expected amount. ] { A 'target amount' of 60 trillion is set for the confiscation of BENAMI PROPERTIES} (Seizure of BENAMI PROPERTIES is ongoing & already 1 trillion worth of properties seized by Govt)[59 Trillion will be completed in the coming 2 years] {[(2019 will see BJP coming back with a thumping majority of 450seats)}]
