MUMBAI: India’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) has confiscated eight properties and five parking spaces owned by Pakistan-origin singer Adnan Sami Khan under the Foreign Exchange Management Act.

This means that the same has become government properties.

The ED imposed a Rs2 million fine on the singer on the grounds that being a Pakistani national he was not allowed to acquire property in India.

Officials said that in 2003 Khan acquired eight immovable properties along with five parking spaces in Oberoi Sky Garden housing society at Lokhandwala in Andheri for a total consideration of Rs25.3 million.
