In Ludhiana, the business premises of the FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) company Cremica group of industries have also been raided. According to sources, over thirty-five Information Technology Department teams have traveled to Ludhiana.

There are ongoing raids at the Trident manufacturing facilities in Budhni, Madhya Pradesh, Barnala, Dhaula, and Ludhiana, Punjab. The company produces yarn, home textiles, paper and stationery, chemicals, and adaptive power in its divisions.

In Punjab, Trident has manufacturing facilities in Barnala and Dhaula and an administrative office in Kitchlu Nagar, Ludhiana.

Padma Shri recipient and Ludhiana-based industrialist Rajinder Gupta is the chairman of Trident Group. The government of Punjab appointed him vice chairman of the State Economic Policy and Planning Board of Punjab for three years in June of last year.
