Mr. Merchant is being investigated by the ED with regard to the reported illegal real estate deals of gangster Mirchi and his family. 

The ED has also arrested two other people in this case in October. 

Senior Nationalist Congress Party leader Praful Patel has also been interrogated by the Enforcement Directorate in the case last week.
