"I find it a little bizarre and shocking that things, which even investigative agencies are not aware of, are being circulated in the media. I believe this is a fairly procedural thing, but what disturbs us all that suddenly a television channel writes 'this and that impact'," RJD leader Manoj Jha told ANI.
"I think investigative agencies should take cognisance of these things because if rule of law comes under doubt then I think it would impact the state processes.
We only wish the investigation should be fair," he added.
The development followed the arrest of chartered accountant Rajesh Kumar Agrawal by the Enforcement Directorate on May 22. Agrawal is alleged to have aided in the illegal transactions involving Lalu's kin.
As per sources, the raids were conducted on the charges of illegal (benami) land deals worth Rs. 1,000 crore.
