The AFU, police and Hawks descended on the Guptas' Saxonwold compound shortly after 2pm on Monday afternoon.

Krause said the Gupta legal team would then bring an urgent challenge to the freezing of the family's properties and seek an urgent reconsideration of the latest asset preservation order granted in the Estina Dairy Project case.

The Gupta brothers have denied any wrongdoing in a scandal that contributed to Zuma's fall as president and the election by parliament in February of President Cyril Ramaphosa on a platform of reviving the economy and cracking down on government corruption.

The unit said that the Bloemfontein High Court granted the order, which allowed it to seize assets from the family to the tune of R250 million.

In the court papers filed in Free State province, Atul Gupta denied receiving 10 million rand as alleged by prosecutors and said he was outside South Africa.

Eyewitness News exclusively reported that the plane had arrived from Dubai and there was no sign of the Gupta brothers.

The Gupta family lawyer, Mr Gert van der Merwe, was not reachable for comment, with his office saying he was overseas.

The Gupta Leaks revealed in 2017 how at least R30m paid to the Guptas, via the farm, ended up funding the family's lavish Sun City wedding in 2013.

An affidavit revealed that Free State's agricultural department - which was then under the leadership of former mineral resources minister Mosebenzi Zwane - allegedly paid R220m to the Guptas and some of their associates in what the Asset Forfeiture Unit calls a "scheme created to defraud and steal monies from the department".
