On Wednesday, the agency has raided 17 locations across India including four shell companies in Mumbai, reported PTI.

While the ED seized assets worth Rs 10 crore on Wednesday, the tax department said it has attached a total of 141 bank accounts and fixed deposits worth Rs 145.74 crore of the Nirav Modi group. The department said it has attached these assets to realise outstanding tax demands.
