The Enforcement Directorate, ED, has issued summons to RJD MP Misa Bharti after it recently conducted raids against her and her husband in connection with a Rs 8,000 crore money laundering case.
ED Officials said that Bharti, daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, has been asked to depose before the investigating officer of the case in New Delhi today. They said, she has also been asked to bring along certain documents, including those related to her personal finances.
The officials said, Bharti’s husband Shailesh Kumar had been summoned yesterday but he skipped.
On Saturday, the central probe agency 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 body probing the alleged financial irregularities by the Lalu Prasad family after the CBI and the Income Tax department which recently attached benami assets worth about 180 crore rupees in its investigation against them.
