Benami assets row: IT dept issues final attachment order against Misa Bharti, husband Shailesh Kumar

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The (I-T) department on Monday issued a final attachment order against RJD chief Yadav's daughter Misa Bharti and her husband in the benami assets case.

The Department on June 13 summoned Shailesh Kumar, in connection with the benami assets and evasion case registered against him.

On June 7, the IT department slapped a fine of Rs. 10,000 against Shailesh on account of not appearing for interrogation.

Earlier, Misa Bharti and her husband Shailesh were summoned by the IT department in connection with a 'benami' assets case.

The summons were issued days after the arrest of Bharti's Chartered Accountant (CA) Rakesh Agrawal, in connection with an probe into a Rs. 8,000 crore money laundering racket, involving two Delhi-based businessmen and a few political entities.

Agrawal was arrested under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for allegedly being instrumental in providing accommodation entries (illegal funds) to launder the money of businessmen brothers- Virendra Jain and Surendra Jain.

The IT department in its summons reportedly said it wishes to question Misa and her husband on transactions conducted by M/s Mishail Packers and Printers Private Limited.

The IT department had conducted raids and surveys at about 22 locations in and adjoining areas in connection with alleged benami deals of Rs 1,000 crore by Lalu's family.
