Bharti was questioned for around eight hours on July 11 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. She was probed about her links with CA Rajesh Agarwal. Her husband Shailesh too was grilled by the ED in the corruption case.

On July 8, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had earlier raided three Delhi premises of Bharti, Shailesh and a firm allegedly linked to them in the money laundering probe involving shell companies.

The ED is the third central probing body investigating alleged financial irregularities by Lalu Prasad’s family after the CBI and the Income Tax department, which recently attached Benami assets worth about 180 crore rupees.

The ED had arrested CA Rajesh Agarwal on March 20 for providing accommodation entries of about Rs. 60 lakh to a firm owned by Bharti and her husband. (ANI)
