Three Metro Vancouver residents named in a multiple-property, $7.5-million civil forfeiture case — where they are accused of laundering money through an auto and appliance repair business and real estate — deny any wrongdoing and are claiming their constitutional rights have been violated.

The case involves six homes in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge and Mission that the province alleges were linked to drug trafficking.

In the suit filed in B.C. Supreme Court, the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Office alleges the auto and appliance repair business was used as a front to conceal the money generated by the alleged drug operation ring dealing in cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and methamphetamine.

The accused include Ashok Kumar Naidu, also known as Roy Naidu; his spouse Gina Chinamma Naidu; Avenel Anish Naidu, the Naidus’ son; Avenel’s girlfriend, Alisha Ann Watkins; and Can Auto Electric and Appliance Repair Ltd.
