New Delhi: The Income Tax department, Wednesday, issued summons to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti in connection with the alleged land scam. The summons came a day after the Enforcement Directorate arrested Bharti’s Chartered Accountant (CA) Rajesh Agarwal, in connection with the money trail scam of around Rs 8000 crore. Ms Bharti’s husband Shailesh Kumar has also been summoned by the I-T department. She has been asked to appear before them on June 06. The Income Tax department had recently conducted raids at 22 locations in Delhi, Gurugram on companies and people associated with Lalu. As per sources, the raids were conducted on the charges of illegal (benami) land deals worth Rs. 1,000 crore. Senior Bihar BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Saturday had also alleged that Misa Bharti, who is also a Rajya Sabha member, had laundered money through a shell company to buy a farmhouse at Delhi’s Bijwasan area at a throwaway price Sushil Modi has also trained his guns at Lalu Prasad’s two minister sons – Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and Health minister Tej Pratap Yadav. He alleged that they had amassed benami properties worth over Rs 1000 crore through various shell companies in Bihar He claimed that Misa Bharti converted her black money into white through dubious transaction of sale and purchase of shares of her company – Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd The company was incorporated with an investment of Rs 1 lakh in 2002 and registered at Lalu Prasad’s then official bungalow 25, Tughlaq Road, New Delhi. It was closed in 2005-06 Bharti sold her company’s shares of face value of Rs 10 each to Virendra Jain’s Shalini Holdings at Rs 100 per share in October 2008, which fetched her Rs 1.20 crore. Eleven months later, Misa purchased all the shares at the rate of Rs 10 per share from Virendra Jain, the BJP leader alleged showing documents to support his claim Later in 2008-09 she purchased a farmhouse at Bijwasan area in Delhi at Rs 1.41 crore whose estimated value at present would be around Rs 50 crore, Sushil Modi, who was accompnaied by state BJP vice-president Devesh Kumar, said. Pointing out that Misa became the owner of Rs 50 crore by investing a mere Rs one lakh, he asked “Why would anyone buy shares of a closed company at the rate of Rs 100 per share against the face value of Rs 10 each? Why would the buyer again sell the same shares at Rs 10 each after buying it at Rs 100?” Sushil Modi also alleged that Misa had misused the address of Prasad’s erstwhile official bungalow – 25, Tughlaq Road as her company’s address as such an allotment cannot be used for any commercial purpose Questioning her source of income, Modi sought to know why she did not reveal it in her affidavit to the Election Commission Virendra Jain and Surendra Jain, the two brothers and business partners in Shalini Holdings who had allegedly helped Prasad in converting black money which he had allegedly earned as railways ministers into white, were arrested by Enforcement Directorate in connection with a Rs 8000 crore money laundering case in March this year, he said Sushil Modi has been releasing documents purportedly showing how Prasad’s family acquired assets of around Rs 1,000 crores through shell companies like Delight Marketing Pvt Ltd, A K Infosystems Pvt Ltd and A B Exports Pvt Ltd.
