The ED on Saturday conducted raids at three different properties owned by his daughter Misa Bharti in connection with an over Rs 1,000-crore benami (proxy) land deals case. Previously the CBI carried out raids at over 12 places of RJD chief Lalu Prasad.

 

"We have conducted raids at three places including Ghitorani, Sainik Farms and Bijwasan belonging to Bharti and her husband Shailesh Kumar," an ED official said.

 

ED officials refuted that they had questioned Bharti at her residence here.

 

The ED is investigating a 'benami' land deals case allegedly involving family members of Lalu Prasad on the basis of an Income Tax department case.

 

On Friday, the CBI carried out raids at the residences of Lalu Prasad, his wife Rabri and son Tejashwi Yadav, who is also Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, for allegedly receiving a three-acre plot of land as a pay-off in leasing two railway hotels to a private company when he was the Railways Minister.

 

On June 21, Income Tax (IT) officials interrogated Bharti for five hours in connection with the benami land case.

 

Earlier, the department attached over 12 properties of her relatives, including husband Shailesh Kumar, and brothers Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav - both ministers in the Bihar cabinet -- under the Benami Transactions Act, 1988.

 

On May 22, the ED arrested a chartered accountant, Rajesh Kumar Agrawal, allegedly linked to Bharti, from Delhi.
