Agrawal has also been accused of helping Bharti`s husband`s company Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd with some transactions.
The CBI had earlier conducted multiple searches against RJD leader Lalu Prasad and his family in connection with several cases of corruption and money laundering against them.
The ED, too, had earlier raided three premises belonging to Misa Bharti and her husband in connection with a money laundering case probe against them.
