The enforcement Directorate took Rana Kapoor in its custody before the Yes Bank founder could shift base from India and dampened his plans of selling his three Delhi properties that are worth over Rs 1000 crores.
The three properties at 40, Amrita Shergill Marg, 18 Kautilya Marg in Chanakya Puri and Diplomatic Enclave on Sardar Patel Marg are not directly linked to Mr Kapoor.
