The ED then initiated a money laundering probe on the basis of the FIR registered by NIA.The ED found that the contraband and the arms were meant for Suresh, Satkunam and their associates. The sale proceeds of the said drugs were meant to be used for the revival of proscribed terrorist organisation LTTE.The ED further learnt that Suresh and Satkunam were involved in a similar case earlier with the active support of Ramesh and Soundarajan.”Suresh and Satkunam were convicted earlier in an NDPS case. The proceeds of crime totalling Rs 3.59 crore were derived by commission of schedule offence. Since the accused persons possessed such proceeds of crime, the same has been provisionally attached,” said the ED official.
