Lalu Yadav troubles mounted! ED to now investigate money laundering and disproportionate assets

Patna: RJD supremo and former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is in jail in connection with the fodder scam, may have added to the woes. The special CBI court has already convicted Lalu Yadav in all the five fodder scam cases. At present, Lalu Yadav is admitted to RIMS. Lalu Yadav has not yet been sentenced after he was convicted in the Rs 139-crore illegal withdrawal case from the Doranda treasury on Tuesday. A special CBI court will pronounce the quantum of punishment for Lalu Yadav in the case on February 21.

In two fodder scam cases, even before the conviction in the same Doranda treasury illegal withdrawal incident, the Enforcement Directorate has registered a separate case under sections of money laundering. The entry of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) may further add to Lalu Yadav's problems, as the Enforcement Directorate team will look into the disproportionate assets angle, including the money laundering angle. In both cases, since Lalu Yadav has been sentenced, his property can also be attached.

The Enforcement Directorate has taken over RC 38a/96 and RC 45/96 cases. An inquiry will be conducted against former Bihar CM Lalu Prasad and other culprits in the Rs 950-crore fodder scam. In the same RC 38A/96, the special CBI court had convicted 19 criminals, including Lalu, in the Rs 3.76-crore illegal withdrawal case, in which he was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment and a fine of Rs 60 lakh.
