In yet another major action, the Enforcement Directorate on Sunday seized farmhouse of RJD leader Misa Bharti.
The Enforcement Directorate had got the order of possession from the adjudicating authority.
need be mentioned that earlier on February 08, a special court in New Delhi summoned RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti and her husband as accused in a money laundering case
It was informed that the ED had on December 23 filed its final report against Bharti and her husband Shailesh Kumar through advocate Nitesh Rana.
The agency had earlier attached a Delhi farmhouse of the couple in connection with its money-laundering probe. The farmhouse, located at 26, Palam Farms in south Delhi’s Bijwasan area, was attached provisionally under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
It belonged to Ms Bharti and Mr Kumar and was “held in the name of M/s Mishail Packers and Printers Private Limited”, the probe agency maintained.
One of the firms that the arrested duo dealt with was Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited. Bharti and her husband are alleged to have been directors in this firm in the past.
It was only during 2009-10 that the address was changed to Farm no. 26, Palam Farms, VPO Bijwasan, New Delhi.
Bharti and Kumar were the directors of the company during the relevant period, the ED asserted.
