ED attaches Lalu & family’s properties worth of Rs 6.2 Crore

RNS: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has taken stiff action against RJD Chief Lalu Yadav, his family, and others involved in an alleged land-for-railway jobs scam. According to official sources, the ED has attached assets worth Rs 6.2 crore belonging to the accused individuals as part of their investigation.

On Monday, the Enforcement Directorate issued a provisional order under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to seize and attach the identified properties linked to the scam. The move aims to prevent the accused from using or disposing of these assets during the ongoing investigation.

This marks the third time the ED has taken action against properties owned by Lalu Yadav and his family in connection with the case. The law enforcement agency is determined to thoroughly investigate the alleged irregularities and bring those involved to justice.

The land-for-railway jobs scam has drawn considerable attention, and the authorities are leaving no stone unturned to unearth the truth and ensure accountability. Further details regarding the specific properties attached and the individuals involved are yet to be disclosed as the investigation continues.

The alleged scam occurred during Lalu Prasad’s tenure as Railway Minister in the UPA-1 government.

According to the ED and CBI, between 2004 and 2009, several people were assigned to Group D positions in various zones of the Indian Railways in exchange for transferring their land to Lalu Prasad’s family members.
