The Enforcement Directorate on Monday summoned Rajya Sabha MP and daughter of RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). This comes two days after the ED raided three premises in Delhi belonging to Misa and her husband.

Earlier on Saturday, the ED officials raided the three farmhouses located in high-class localities of Ghitorni, Bijwasan and Sainik Farms. During the searches, the agency said, “incriminating” documents, electronic devices, including phones, were seized.

The farmhouses are believed to be owned by Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar, and their company M/s Mishail Packers and Printers Private Limited. Two more properties allegedly belonging to the couple have been identified by ED officials and may be searched soon, as rspources told The Indian Express.

The searches were conducted by the ED in connection with 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 were arrested in March.

    Poor Lalu honest and true pseudo secular! He loves all that includes his family. He cares for all that involves only his family. He has a party of true sycophants, Psychopaths and criminals who see in him the way to go for Bihar. Really we should ask ourselves the question if Plato says People deserve the Government they get, should we let our children play with a Bihari Child?
