OB Bureau

Ranchi: Days after Rs 35 crore in cash was recovered from the house of his personal secretary’s (PS) domestic help, Jharkhand minister Alamgir Alam was arrested in a money-laundering case.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned the state Rural Development minister on the massive amount of cash seizure on Wednesday before taking him into custody.

“I was called today as well and so I have come,” Alam told newspersons before entering the ED office this morning.

He was summoned to appear at ED’s zonal office here to record his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

On Tuesday, the Congress leader had been interrogated by ED officials for about 10 hours.

The money-laundering probe is looking into alleged irregularities in the Jharkhand’s Rural Development department.

Alam’s PA Sanjeev Lal and his house help Jahangir Alam were arrested by the ED after cash amounting to Rs 35.23 crore was recovered from their premises in Ranchi.
