Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday appeared before a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in connection with the Fodder scam case. Sources said, Lalu’s daughter Misa Bharti won’t appear on Tuesday before Income-Tax officials for questioning over money laundering case. Earlier, Bharti and her husband were summoned by the Income Tax Department in connection with a ‘benami’ assets case. The summons were issued days after the arrest of Agrawal in connection with an Enforcement Directorate probe into a Rs. 8,000 crore money laundering racket, involving two Delhi-based businessmen and a few political entities.

Agrawal was arrested under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for allegedly being instrumental in providing accommodation entries (illegal funds) to launder the money of businessmen brothers- Virendra Jain and Surendra Jain.

The Income Tax Department has, in it’s summon reportedly said that it wishes to question Misa and her husband on transactions conducted by the M/s Mishail Packers and Printers Private Limited.

Misa is also under the scanner for dubious land ownership deals.

The income tax department had conducted raids and surveys at about 22 locations in Delhi and adjoining areas last week in connection with alleged benami deals of Rs 1,000 crore by Lalu’s family.

    RJD must be called LALU JANTA DAL and SP must be renamed as YADAV SAMAJWADI PARTY .They should align with Congress,TMC and JD SECULAR to form LOOTERS AND P ERERS PARTY -LPP.Their manifesto must list the points "for perfect loot without getting caught" and how to perpetuate poverty and illiteracy for easy vote banks.
