ED files chargesheet against Koda in Ranchi court
Ranchi: The Enforcement Directorate on Friday filed a chargesheet against former Jharkhand Chief Minister
Madhu Koda in the multi-crore illegal investment and hawala transactions case against him.
The ED filed a "voluminous" charge sheet at a special court here which included details of the agency`s probe in a number of Indian cities, offshore destinations and the role of his close associates like Binod and Vikash Sinha, official sources said.
Koda and his associates are facing inquiries by various probe agencies like the Income Tax department, the CBI and Jharkhand Vigilance Bureau regarding the alleged illegal investments.
On November 12 last year, CBI had filed a chargesheet against Koda, Binod and Sanjay.
Evidence against Koda was secured during countrywide raids, including on the premises of his associates, by the ED and the Income Tax department in October 2009 which allegedly revealed Rs 2,000 crore in illegal investments and hawala transactions during Koda`s tenure as chief minister.
Koda, who was arrested on November 30, 2009, is at present lodged in the Birsa Munda jail here.
