The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed second chargesheet against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad's daughter Misa Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar and others in Delhi's Patiala House Court in connection with alleged Rs 8000 crore money laundering case.
The agency, which had filed this supplementary chargesheet before the court on January 4, was pulled up by the Delhi court for filing supplementary charge-sheet again. "By filing supplementary charge-sheet whole trail getting disturbed," the court said.
The court has fixed February 5 as the next date of hearing for cognisance in the matter.
The development comes days after the Enforcement Directorate filed a chargesheet against Misa Bharti, her husband and others in Delhi court.
The Income Tax (I-T) department had earlier issued a final attachment order against Bharti and her husband in the benami assets case.
Earlier on July 21, the ED had filed a chargesheet against Bharti's Chartered Accountant (CA) Rajesh Agarwal in connection with a Rs 8,000 crore money laundering case.
On July 11, Bharti was questioned for around eight hours by the ED officials in connection with the case.
She was reportedly asked to bring along certain documents, including those related to her personal finances. Misa's husband Shailesh Kumar was also grilled by the ED in the case.
On July 8, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided three Delhi premises of Bharti, her husband and a firm allegedly linked to them in the money laundering probe involving shell companies.
The ED is the third central probing body investigating the alleged financial irregularities by Lalu's family after the CBI and the Income Tax department.
