Lucknow: Enforcement Directorate (ED), Lucknow unit has registered a money laundering case against 11 people, including public servants and others, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act.

The role of former state Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is under the scanner in connection with the alleged illegal mining in Uttar Pradesh.

Case is based on a CBI FIR to probe the role of State Mining Ministers, including former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav during 2012-16.

The CBI last week tightened the noose around Yadav, claiming that his office had cleared 13 projects on a single day. Yadav, who also held the mining portfolio, had cleared 14 leases, of which 13 were cleared on 17 February, 2013, according to the probe agency.
