Mumbai: City police, probing the case of disproportionate assets against Congress leader Kripashankar Singh, have attached one more property owned by the politician`s family.
An open plot in Panvel of Raigadh district has been attached, an official said, adding, "No cash has been recovered from any of the properties attached so far."
As per the Bombay High Court order document, the Panvel property is in the name of Singh`s son Narendra Mohan.

On Friday, 12 properties of the former Mumbai Congress chief and his family had been attached in the metropolis, three days after police booked him, his five family members and others on charges of cheating, forgery and corruption.

The process to attach some more properties in Ratnagiri and Uttar Pradesh is still underway, sources said.

On Friday, Singh had also failed to secure a stay from the Supreme Court on the Bombay High Court order for prosecuting him under the Prevention of Corruption Act and attachment of his properties.

The High Court had on February 22 ordered prosecution of Singh for "criminal misconduct" under the Prevention of Corruption Act and also attachment of properties owned by him.
