    Besides summoning Ami, an American citizen, the central probe agency has called his uncle and Gitanjali Gems promoter Mehul Choksi for questioning on February 26 at the ED office in Mumbai, sources said.

"The agency sleuths on Friday seized a large collection of imported watches, 176 steel almirahs, 158 corrugated boxes and 60 other containers after searches at multiple locations linked to Modi over the last week," sources said. The ED had on Thursday seized deposits, shares and luxury cars worth over 100 crores from the businessman and his group.

    The total seizure by the ED in the case now stands at Rs 5,870 crore, officials claimed.
