IAS Pooja Singhal arrested in money laundering case, ED’s big action

A big case has been registered against IAS officer Pooja Singhal in a case of money laundering in Jharkhand. After several hours of interrogation, the ED arrested him. ED raided close relatives of Pooja Singhal in Ranchi and other places. During the raid, the ED recovered over Rs 19 crore in cash and several important documents. ED has arrested Jharkhand’s Mines Secretary Pooja Singhal. Singhal appeared before the Enforcement Directorate for the second consecutive day in connection with the alleged embezzlement and money laundering probe of MGNREGA funds. He was arrested after interrogation. The agency also recorded the statement of her businessman husband Abhishek Zaan. The agency had also conducted raids again in Kolkata in connection with the case.

 

It should be noted that this issue is several years old. In fact, there was MNREGA scam in Jharkhand in 2009-10. In this case, a few days ago, the ED conducted simultaneous raids in Jharkhand, West Bengal, Haryana and Rajasthan. 19 crore 31 lakh rupees were recovered in the same raid. Out of Rs 19 crore 31 lakh, Rs 17 crore was recovered from the house of a chartered accountant. The rest of the money was received from a company.
