New Delhi [India], Dec 23 (ANI): The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday filed a chargesheet against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad's daughter Misa Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar and others in Delhi's Patiala House Court in connection with a money laundering case.

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 Prasad's family after the CBI and the Income Tax department. (ANI)
