New Delhi: In a major crackdown by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Cash deposits of over Rs 100 crores in the account of Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Rs 1.43cr in her brother Anand Kumar’s account in Delhi were found on Monday.
The huge amount was deposited at the Karol Bagh branch of United Bank of India.
ED sources said that they were on a routine enquiry in the bank when they detected huge cash deposits post-demonetisation in these two accounts.
