New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has seized 11 plots of land in Patna worth 44.75 crore rupees in the name of a firm linked to RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s family, as part of the IRCTC hotel money laundering case.
The central probe agency was allowed to take possession of the seized assets by a designated PMLA authority recently.
Officials said, possession documents were notified and a huge notice board, bearing the signature of Assistant Director of the Delhi zonal office-I, was put up at the contiguous plots, measuring about three acres, in Danapur near the Bihar capital yesterday.
Lalu family’s plots are money laundering assets
A designated PMLA authority recently held that 11 land plots worth Rs. 44.75 crore in the name of a firm linked to RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s family are money laundering assets and ordered that their attachment should continue.
In July last year, the agency registered a case against Lalu Prasad, his family members and others under the provisions of the PMLA.
