Pakistani Singer Adnan Samiís Home Has Still Not Been Seized By Enforcement Department
Media reports recently claimed that Pakistani singer Adnan Sami’s home has been seized by the Enforcement Department, however, Adnan clarified he still stays at his home as he is allowed.
Adnan said, "This decision is of a tribunal court. Many have this misconception that the property is immediately confiscated from me. That is not correct. We have been given 45 days to appeal and we will appeal. There are many legal factors and we will address them in the court of law."
Adnan’s lawyer Vibhav Krishna said, "Today it is only adjudication by an authority. They have not locked it. It's not a confiscation or an execution of the order. He'll stay here and file his appeal and await the adjudication of the appeal. He has this roof to stay."
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) issued a legal notice to the singer recently because he owns about five car parking places and eight residences in Mumbai without the consent of Reserve Bank of India. He has been imposed with a fine of Rs.20 lakh.
As per Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) 2000, any person from China, Pakistan and Sri Lanka needs RBI consent to purchase or sale of property in India and Adnan is from Pakistan.
