The Enforcement Directorate Tuesday confiscated assets worth Rs 7.98 crore of former Jharkhand health and labour minister Bhanu Pratap Shahi under money laundering Act. ED officials of Patna zonal office confiscated assets, including five commercial and residential properties in posh area of Gurgaon in Haryana, 10 acres of land at prime locations in Ranchi and 10 acres in Garhwa district and a few bank accounts in New Delhi, ED sources said.

“The property acquired by Shahi is way above his known sources of income after he was elected an MLA in 2005. Prima facie he seems to have abused his position of a minister in the state government and ED has ample proof to nail him any court of law in the country,” they said.
