ED Recovers Cash, Gold, Arms From Premises Of Former INLD Legislator Dilbag Singh And His Associates

As part of a money laundering investigation connected to alleged illicit mining in the state’s Yamuna Nagar area, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided the residences of former INLD representative Dilbag Singh, MLA for the Haryana Congress Surender Panwar, and other individuals on January 4, according to official sources.

Singh has served as the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) representative for Yamuna Nagar, while Panwar is a member of the Haryana Assembly from Sonipat.

According to the reports, raids were conducted on up to 20 places associated with the two lawmakers and their affiliates.

Under the guidelines of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), searches are being conducted in a number of locations, including Yamuna Nagar, Sonipat, Mohali, Faridabad, Chandigarh, and Karnal.

This money laundering case is the result of multiple First Information Reports (FIRs) filed by the Haryana Police to investigate past suspected illegal mining of boulders, gravel, and sand in Yamuna Nagar and surrounding regions, even after the lease had expired and a court order had been issued.

Along with investigating potential fraud, the national agency is looking into the ‘e-ravan’ system, an online site introduced by the Haryana government in 2020 with the goal of streamlining tax and royalties collection and preventing tax evasion in mining areas.

Chief Ministers Arvind Kejriwal of Delhi and Hemant Soren of Jharkhand are the two who are now being investigated by the Enforcement Department (ED) for possible money laundering. The two leaders are under the financial investigative agency’s tight observation and have eschewed their summons. Days ago, the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) gave Soren a “last opportunity” to record his statement in an alleged land fraud. According to reports, Soren responded to the ED by declaring his summons to be “illegal.” As part of an ongoing investigation into money laundering, the ED also carried out raids earlier on January 3 at the Ranchi home of Soren’s press advisor, Abhishek Prasad, also known as Pintu. According to agency sources, searches were conducted at 12 locations, including the homes of Sahebganj Deputy Commissioner and Abhishek Prasad.
