New DelhiThe Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday filed charge sheet against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti and her husband in a money laundering case

ED counsel Nitesh Rana filed the charge sheet before the court of Special Judge N K Malhotra

The probe agency had earlier attached a Delhi farmhouse in connection with its money laundering probe against Bharti and her husband, Shailesh Kumar

The farmhouse, located at 26, Palam Farms in south Delhi’s Bijwasan area was attached provisionally under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). It belongs to Bharti and Kumar and is “held in the name of Ms Mishail Packers and Printers Private Limited”, the central probe agency said

“It was purchased using INR 1.2 crore involved in money laundering in the year 2008-09,” the ED alleged

The agency had also conducted raids at this location and few others in July as part of its probe against two brothers, Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain, and others who have been alleged to have laundered several crore rupees using shell companies

The Jain brothers were arrested by the ED under the PMLA. It had also arrested a chartered accountant, Rajesh Agrawal, who mediated and provided a cash amount of “INR 90 lakh to the Jain brothers in advance so as to invest in Ms Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd as share premium”

One of the firms that the arrested duo dealt with was Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited

Bharti and her husband are alleged to have been directors of this firm in the past

“The company, Ms Mishail Packers and Printers, was registered at the address 25, Tuglak Road, New Delhi till the shares were bought by Bharti

“It was only during the year 2009-10 that the address was changed to farm no 26 Palam Farms, VPO Bijwasan, New Delhi

Bharti and Kumar were the directors of the company during the relevant period,” it said

The couple were also interrogated and their statements recorded by the agency in this probe case

The agency said the Jain brothers, CA Agrawal and the daughter and the son-in-law of the former Bihar chief minister were the “key persons behind the money laundering of INR 1.2 crore”.
