July 11, 2017  21:00
Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Misa Bharti was today grilled for nearly eight hours by Enforcement Directorate sleuths in connection with the agency's probe into a Rs 8,000 crore money laundering case, officials said.
Bharti, the daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, deposed before the investigating officer of the case at the central probe agency's zonal office in New Delhi shortly after 11 am.
The officials said her statement was also recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
They said Bharti was questioned about her role in relation to a firm, M/s Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited, and her other finances and her links with a Chattered Accountant arrested by the agency earlier.
The ED had on July 8 conducted searches at three Delhi farmhouses of Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar and the firm.
Her husband Shailesh Kumar was also summoned yesterday but he reportedly skipped the date.

The ED raids on July 8 had come a day after the CBI had raided multiple premises of Prasad and his family in a corruption case probe.
The latest summons to Bharti and her husband are related to a Rs 8,000 crore money laundering probe being conducted by the agency against two Delhi-based businessmen brothers, Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain, and others who are alleged to have laundered several crore rupees using over 90 shell companies.
