Rajya Sabha MP and daughter of RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti was on Monday summoned by the Enforcement Directorate under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The development comes two days after three premises in Delhi belonging to Misa and her husband were raided by the ED.
On Saturday, three farmhouses located in high-class localities of Ghitorni, Bijwasan and Sainik Farms were raided. The agency said “incriminating” documents, electronic devices, including phones, were seized during the raids.
The raids were conducted in as part of ED’s 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. The duo was arrested in March.
