New Delhi: In yet another blow to the Lalu family that stands to lose most of its properties allegedly obtained through illegal means, the Income Tax (IT) department on Monday issued final attachment of properties of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, his daughter and son-in-law Misa Bharti and Shailesh Kumar respectively, and properties of other family members.

The final attachment comes exactly three months after the IT department issued provisional orders to attach properties worth over Rs. 1000 crore owned jointly by Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, daughter and son-in-law Misa Bharti and Shailesh Kumar, sons Tejaswi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav and other daughters of the RJD chief.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had earlier seized a farmhouse owned by Misa Bharti in Bijwasan outside Delhi and had charged her with money-laundering through a fake company owned by the husband-wife duo.

As reported, besides the Delhi farmhouse, other buildings and properties attached by the IT are another farmhouse in the Palam Vihar area of Delhi, a residential housing in New Friends Colony in Delhi, and nine plots of lands in Phulwari Sharif in Patna where a shopping mall was being built until a court issued an injunction on its construction.
