Businessman Ratul Puri, nephew of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a Rs 354 crore case, officials said on Tuesday.  

They said Puri was placed under arrest under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) late Monday night.

He will be produced before a court here on Tuesday, the officials said.

The ED had slapped a PMLA case in this instance and arrested Ratul Puri, the officials said.
