The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday said it has made a fresh arrest in an ongoing money-laundering investigation linked to the alleged duping of common people to the tune of about Rs 5,000 crore through cybercrimes and online gaming.


Punit Kumar aka Puneet Maheshwari was arrested on April 3 from Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport shortly after he arrived from Nepal, the agency said in a statement.

Kumar, a resident of Delhi’s Moti Nagar area, is accused of “defrauding” the general public through various cyber fraud schemes, laundering the “proceeds of crime” and siphoning those out of India, it said.
