"We have registered two ECIRs against Bhujbal and others under the provisions of PMLA," an ED source told reporters.

The first ECIR pertains to the Maharashtra Sadan scam and Kalina land allotment case, while the second ECIR is in connection with an FIR against the senior NCP leader involving a housing project at Navi Mumbai wherein its developer had collected 10 percent of flat's total cost as booking amount in 2010 but started no work, the source said.

The Navi Mumbai Police, on Saturday, had booked Bhujbal in the case involving an amount of Rs 44 crore.

It concerns 2,300 people who had booked houses in the project 'Hex World' promoted by a realty company owned by Bhujbal family at Kharghar, Navi Mumbai.

A group of 25-30 people, waiting for the housing project to take off for four years, had approached the court over the delay in its construction.

The FIR, filed at the Taloja Police Station in Navi Mumbai, named Bhujbal, his son Pankaj, and nephew Samir in the case.

They were booked under IPC sections related to cheating, criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and relevant provisions of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act.

Last week, the Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau had registered two FIRs against Bhujbal, the first related to alleged irregularities in allotment of a prime plot at Kalina in Mumbai to a developer.
