New Delhi, July 12, 2017: In a major blow to RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, Enforcement Directorate (ED) has now summoned the former Bihar’s CM son in law Shailesh Kumar in a money laundering case.
Yesterday, Misa Bharti was questioned for 8 hours and was reportedly asked to bring along certain documents, including those related to her personal finances, as per the report.
On July 8, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had raided three Delhi premises of Bharti, Shailesh and a firm allegedly linked to them in the money-laundering probe involving shell companies. The ED is the third central probing body investigating alleged financial irregularities by Lalu Prasad’s family after the CBI and the I-T department, which recently attached Benami assets worth about 180 crore rupees.
Earlier this week, the CBI registered a corruption case against Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejaswi Yadav; former Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) Managing Director P.K. Goyal; and the wife of Lalu’s confidante Prem Chand Gupta, Sujata on allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of hotels in Ranchi and Puri in 2006.
