“Khan was taken into custody on landing at the New Delhi international airport on arrival from Dubai around 2 am in an Air India flight 916,” said an official.

The major breakthrough in the IMA Gold multi-crore cheating case for the Enforcement Directorate (ED) came as a lookout notice on Khan was issued to all concerned, including the Interpol, through the Union Home Ministry.

Khan, who is accused of perpetrating financial fraud worth thousands of crores in Bengaluru, was absconding for a month and was traced in Dubai and told to return to India.

“He had shared a video in which he claimed that he shall return to India in next 24 hours,” the SIT officer said on its basis the arrest was made.

Sources in the ED said that the ponzi scam accused has reportedly divulged names of senior Congress leader from Karnataka in connection with the scam that defrauded over 40,000 innocent Muslims from the state.
