ED summons Lalu's daughter Misa Bharti in money laundering case
New Delhi: The problems for Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti soared on Monday when the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned her under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The summon has been issued two days after the ED carried out raids at three different premises of the Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti and her husband.
It may be mentioned that ED had raided three different farmhouses situated in high-class localities of Ghitorni, Bijwasan and Sainik Farms on Saturday. After the searches, the agency said, “Incriminating documents, electronic devices, including phones, were seized."
The three farmhouses are believably owned by Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar and their company M/s Mishail Packers and Printers Private Limited. The ED has also verified two more properties allegedly belonging to the couple.
According to an official source, the properties may be searched soon.
The ED conducted the raids in its probe into alleged laundering of over Rs 8,000 crore by two market entry operators, identified as Surendra Jain and Virendra Jain, through a maze of shell companies. Both of them had already been arrested in March this year.
