Armaan Jain, the cousin of Ranbir Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karisma Kapoor, was reportedly summoned by the Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday in a money laundering case. According to reports, Armaan's name cropped up when the central agency was investigating a case against Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik and his son Vihang.
Reportedly, ED officials conducted a raid at Armaan's Altamount Road residence in South Mumbai where he lives with his mother Reema Kapoor Jain, wife Anissa Malhotra Jain and others. However, during the raid, the news of Reema's brother, Rajiv Kapoor's demise broke. The officials permitted Reema to go to her brother's Chembur residence. As per reports, the raid continued for a few hours and after it concluded, Armaan was allowed to be by his grieving family's side.
Reportedly, Armaan is a close friend of Vihang, who is under investigation in a money laundering case against a security service provider company and others. As per reports, Vihang has been questioned twice in the case and ED officials had also taken data of Vihang's mobile phone while he was called for questioning. The ED officials in the past raided Pratap's properties in Mumbai, Thane and his residence in Hiranandani Complex. When questioned, he refuted all allegations against him.
The ED officials reportedly found some suspicious communication between Armaan and Vihang. Pratap's younger son Purvesh had also been called for questioning in the case.
Armaan made his acting debut in Lekar Hum Deewana Dil and now, he has become the founder of Kitchen Tales, an all-vegetarian delivery kitchen.
