Shimla, July 18

The Enforcement Directorate has submitted the details of the properties of Indian Technomac Company and its Directors in a sealed cover before the High Court.

During the course of hearing, it was informed to the court that in compliance of the directions passed by the court on previous date, the Enforcement Directorate as also the Superintendent of Police, Cyber Crime has filed their respective affidavits mentioning therein the details of the properties of the company and its Directors.

The management of Indian Technomac Company Limited is allegedly involved in the multi-crore embezzlement case.
