The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a money laundering case against the GVK group, the Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) and others to probe alleged irregularities to the tune of ₹ 705 crore in running the Mumbai airport, officials said on Tuesday.

The central probe agency has filed an enforcement case information report (equivalent of a police FIR) under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act after studying a recent CBI FIR filed against the same entities.

The ED will probe if genuine funds were laundered to amass personal assets by illegal routing of funds, they said.
