News Tech: The Enforcement Directorate raided multiple locations in Jharkhand on Wednesday and recovered 2 AK series assault rifles as part of an ongoing money-laundering investigation into alleged illegal mining in the state, official sources said.

The sources identified the premises to be linked to a person — Prem Prakash — involved in the case.

The weapons were kept in an almirah at a home in Ranchi, they said.

The federal probe agency is covering about 17-20 premises in Jharkhand, neighbouring Bihar, Tamil Nadu and the Delhi-NCR as part of the operation.

The searches were launched after the ED filed a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Mishra and others in March, alleging that the former ”illegally grabbed or amassed huge assets in his favour”.

Soon after the July raids, the ED seized funds amounting to Rs 13.32 crore lying in 50 bank accounts. ”The evidence collected during the course of the investigation, including the statements of various persons, digital evidence and documents, revealed that the seized cash or bank balance is derived from illegal mining being rampantly done in the Sahibganj area, including the forest area,” the agency had said.

It had said it was probing the trail of Rs 100 crore of ”proceeds of crime” generated from illegal mining operations in Jharkhand. (This story has not been edited by Our Editor Team and is generated from a Feed.)
