Shrugging off her responsibility, Bharti has put the onus on her husband and a dead CA of running the company during interrogation by the Enforcement Directorate officials. The Enforcement Directorate has seized a farmhouse located at 26, Palam Farms in south Delhi’s Bijwasan area belonging to Misa. The chargesheet against the couple was filed by the agency in December 2017. The ED had earlier attached the farmhouse provisionally under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). “It was purchased using Rs 1.2 crore involved in money laundering in the year 2008-09,” the ED had alleged then. A special court has summoned the couple as accused in the case.
Giving brief replies on being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate, Misa told the agency that the day-to-day business activities of the firm were “looked after by her husband Shailesh Kumar and the financial records of this company were maintained by the CA of the company, late Sandeep Sharma.” Hence, she said, her husband and the deceased CA “would be in a better position” to answer questions about the company and the farmhouse purchased by it.
The ED is probing Bharti and her husband as part of its criminal probe in a Rs 8,000 crore money laundering case involving shell companies and two Delhi-based alleged entry operators Surendra Jain and Virendra Jain, referred to as Jain brothers. The ED has arrested the Jain brothers and an accountant, Rajesh Agarwal, who mediated and provided a cash amount of “Rs 90 lakh to the Jain brothers in advance so as to invest in Ms Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd as share premium”.
The agency said the Jain brothers, Agarwal and the daughter and the son-in-law of Lalu Yadav were the “key persons behind the money laundering of Rs 1.20 crore”.
