Patna: The Income Tax Department has released a list of 12 seized plots, owned by the family members of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.

These properties are located in Patna and Delhi. A farmhouse in Vijwasan and a bungalow in New Friends Colony have also been attached. According to the I-T department, all the attached plots are Benami properties, the real beneficiaries of which are Lalu’s relatives.

A plush farm house in Vijwasan, Delhi, is registered in the name of Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt. Limited, but the real beneficiaries are said to be Lalu Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti and her husband Shailesh Kumar.

Beneficiaries of a Bungalow, registered in the name of AB Exports Pvt. Ltd, are mentioned as Tejaswi Yadav and his sisters Chanda Yadav and Ragini Yadav.

Just after the list was made public, Tejaswi Yadav denied any such action by the Tax Department. “This is a political conspiracy to malign my family. I have not received any I-T notice nor am I aware of any seizure by the I-T Department. We have replied each and every question posed to us and we will continue to stand by the rule of law in future," he said.

The market value of the total attached property is worth Rs. 175 crore, whereas the book value of the attached property is Rs. 9.32 crore.

The I-T Department had issued notices to Misha Bharti and her husband Shailesh Kumar to appear before it, but both failed to do so.

The notice was served a few days after Chartered Accountant Sanjay Agrawal, who also worked for Misa Bharti, was arrested in a money laundering case.
