Patna (Bihar) [India], Apr. 27 (ANI): Under the provision of Benami Property Transaction Act, the Income Tax (I-T) department on Friday attached 7,105 square feet of land in Patna's Sheikhpura district, registered in the name of a factory belonging to Lalu Prasad's son Tej Pratap Yadav.
The I-T had earlier charged four members of Lalu Yadav's family with owning benami property under a tough law that attracts seven years in prison and a hefty fine for those found guilty.
Earlier in January, the I-T department stepped up actions under Benami Act, which provides provisional attachment and subsequent confiscation of benami properties, whether movable or immovable. (ANI)
