New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday arrested a chartered accountant Rajesh Agarwal allegedly linked with Rs8,000 crore money laundering case, according to media reports.
Agarwal is said to have links with Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha member and daughter of former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad, media reports said.
However, officials have said that the arrest is linked to the money laundering and not his association with Bharti.
According to media reports, the directorate last week filed charges against Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain, two entry operators who have been accused of creating shell companies to whitewash black money. The Jain brothers were arrested in March.
