The Enforcement Directorate has confiscated Rs 100-crore worth beach side farm house, owned by liquor baron Vijay Mallya, in connection with money laundering case pending against him. The farm house is in Alibaug in Raigad district of Maharashtra.
The property was spread in 17 acres and registered in the name of MS Mandwa Farms Private limited controlled by Mallya, the agency said the Directorate had served eviction orders to the occupants in April this year after the owners failed to get any relief from appellate bodies.
