Sarju Popat, 51, from London, was jailed for five-and-a-half years for fraudulently claiming back millions of pounds of tax on car sales between 2009 and 2011 after an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

He has now been ordered to repay £2 million of stolen tax after HMRC found he used his criminal cash to buy properties in London’s Cricklewood, Hatch End and Muswell Hill.

Popat faces selling the properties to repay the money he stole within three months or face another 10 years in prison and still owe the money
