The raids were conducted at Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Gurugram, Gandhinagar and other parts of the country.

"We have recovered a few digital devices, documents and other relevant things. We have recorded the statements of a few brokers. In coming weeks, they can be asked to join the investigation," said a CBI source.
