Money laundering of Rs.8 K crores: ED to question Misa Bharti

New Delhi, July 11: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Member of Parliament Misa Bharti has been asked to appear before Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials along with her husband Shailesh Kumar in connection with the alleged money laundering of Rs.8,000 crores.

Bharti, the eldest daughter of RJD chief Lalu Yadav, will depose before an ED investigating officer here today.
She has reportedly been asked to bring along certain documents, including those related to her personal finances.

On Saturday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) 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 probing body investigating alleged financial irregularities by Lalu Prasad’s family after the CBI and the Income Tax department, which recently attached benami assets worth about 180 crore rupees.
