India seizes Adnan Sami's property

Enforcement Directorate seizes eight properties worth 25 million Indian rupees.

Express December 27, 2010

The Enforcement Directorate in India on Monday confiscated eight properties and five parking spaces belonging to singer Adnan Sami under the Foreign Exchange Management Act.

According to Indian law, a foreign national cannot acquire immovable property in India (other than on lease, not exceeding five years).

The Times of India reports that the singer had acquired eight properties, in 2003, totaling 25 million Indian rupees in a housing society in Andheri, Maharashtra. The properties now belong to the Indian government.

The Enforcement Directorate has also imposed a fine of 2 million Indian rupees on the singer.
