The Income-Tax department on Monday seized benami properties of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti, son-in-law Shailesh Kumar and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav.  Earlier the IT department had issued two summonses to Misa, but after she failed to appear, the IT department proceeded to seize the properties which were raided in May. On June 13, the IT- Department has summoned Shailesh Kumar, in connection with the benami assets and tax evasion case registered against him.  On June 7, the IT department slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 against Shailesh on account of not appearing for interrogation.  Earlier, Misa Bharti and her husband Shailesh were summoned by the IT department in connection with a ‘benami’ assets case.  The summons were issued days after the arrest of Bharti’s Chartered Accountant (CA) Rakesh Agrawal, in connection with an Enforcement Directorate probe into a Rs. 8,000 crore money laundering racket, involving two Delhi-based businessmen and a few political entities.   The Rediff.com : 20th.
