Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son in law Shailesh Kumar will be appearing before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday in the alleged Rs. 8,000 crore money laundering case.
Earlier on Monday, Shailesh had skipped the summon by the ED. Meanwhile, his wife and Lalu Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti was yesterday grilled for 8 hours in the case.
She was reportedly asked to bring along certain documents, including those related to her personal finances.
On Saturday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had raided three Delhi premises of Bharti, Shailesh and a firm allegedly linked to them in the money laundering probe involving shell companies.
The ED is the third central probing body investigating the alleged financial irregularities by Lalu Yadav’s family after the CBI and the Income Tax department, which recently attached Benami assets worth about 180 crore rupees.
