On Monday, July 31, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached assets worth more than 6 crore rupees, belonging to RJD supremo, Lalu Prasad Yadav, and his family members, wife Rabri Devi, and his daughter, Misa Bharti, along with those of linked companies, as part of the agency’s investigation in a money laundering case against Yadav and his family members, related to an alleged land-for-railway jobs scam.

After this development, the RJD slammed the Central Government, saying that the objective of such actions is to disrupt the Opposition alliance, I.N.D.I.A. RJD MP and spokesperson, Manoj Jha, accused the ED of ‘spinning and planting stories’ in the media about the investigation against Prasad and his family, and claimed that the government had sought an extension for the probe agency’s chief to ‘target’ opposition leaders.

Earlier, in a statement released by the ED, the agency said, ‘A provisional order under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act has been issued to attach the six immovable assets in Patna, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, and a four-storey bungalow at D-1088 in the posh New Friends Colony area of south Delhi.’

The statement further mentioned, ‘The properties attached also include two land parcels situated at Mahuabagh, Danapur, Patna, of which one each is owned by former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi and AK Infosystems Pvt Ltd (a company stated to be controlled by Prasad’s family), a land parcel owned by RJD chief’s MP daughter Misa Bharti in the Bihta area of Patna.’

‘Also attached is a portion of two industrial plots, one plot each registered in the names of Vineet Yadav and Shiv Kumar Yadav, the husband and father-in-law respectively of Yadav’s daughter Hema Yadav, situated in the Sahibabad industrial area of Ghaziabad.’, it said.

The ED further said that AB Exports Pvt Ltd is a shell or fake company owned by Prasad’s son and Bihar deputy Chief Minister, Tejashwi Yadav, and Chanda Yadav, another daughter of the RJD chief, and its registered address is the bungalow located in the New Friends Colony area.
