A charge sheet has been filed against Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter, Misa Bharti, in the case of money laundering. The charge sheet was filed by The Enforcement Directorate against Misa, and others in Delhi’s Patiala House Court in the alleged connection with Rs. 8000 crore money laundering case. A hearing will be held on February 5, to have further clarity on the matter. Previously, the Enforcement Directorate had filed a charge sheet against Misa and her husband, Shailesh Kumar, in the Patiala House Court, with the same accusation of money laundering by the couple and others in the RJD party.
The Income Tax department had also asked the couple to clarify themselves in relation to benami assets case. The ED had also filed a charge sheet against Bharti’s Chartered Accountant, questioning their involvement in the 8 thousand crore laundering case. Misa was also interviews by the ED, and asked to bring in every document that showed the finances of her and husband, Shailesh. The two were apparently involved in the laundering case, as their expenses showed great discrepancies and did not match with their finances.
This is another blow to the Yadav family, after Lalu being found guilty in the Fodder scam. The decision for his punishment will soon be announced by the CBI court through the press conference. Lalu’s lawyer has pled before the court because to reduce the sentence because of his client’s health issues, and Lalu himself has said that because almost everyone who was accused has now been released, so he should be given a minimum sentence.
