Misa Bharti blames husband for laundering

NEW DELHI: Shrugging off her responsibility, RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti has put the onus of running a company being probed for money laundering on her husband and a dead CA, even though the ED has said the duo “actively conspired” to launder Rs 1.2 crore using shell firms.

The agency, in its chargesheet filed against the couple in December, had said they were “party and actively connected with proceeds of crime, including its concealment, possession, acquisition or use and projecting or claiming it as untainted property, and thus are guilty of offence of money laundering.”

A special court in Delhi took cognisance of the chargesheet—called the prosecution complaint under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act—and summoned the couple as accused in the case. They are scheduled to appear before the court tomorrow.
