ED files charge sheet against Misa Bharti, husband

More trouble lay in store for Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Yadav’s family on Saturday with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filing a charge sheet against his daughter and Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti and her husband in a money laundering case. The ED action came on a day a Ranchi court convicted Yadav in a fodder scam case.Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar and their company Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd, among others, were named in the charge sheet filed in a Delhi court for allegedly laundering Rs 1.20 crore.The case was registered by the ED following investigations into a complaint filed by Serious Fraud Investigating Office (SFIO) about a Rs 8,000 crore money-laundering racket involving two Delhi-based brothers, Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain, who were accused of using shell companies to help others route money.The ED had earlier attached a farmhouse ‘Palam Farms’ in south-west Delhi belonging to the couple in connection with the case.The Jain brothers, who were arrested, were accused of laundering unaccounted money through the process of placement of funds, layering of transactions and final integration of laundering money into the banking channel camouflaged as legitimate share premium transactions, the ED said.The ED investigation found that 1.20 lakh shares of Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd were bought during 2007-08 and 2008-09 at Rs 100 per share by four shell companies, three of which were managed by the Jain brothers. These shares were later bought by Bharti at Rs 12 per share in 2009.It said a chartered accountant Rajesh Agrawal, who “mediated and provided” Rs 90 lakh to the Jain brothers in advance so as to invest in Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd as share premium while another has provided Rs 30 lakh to Santosh Kumar Shah, who was running the fourth shell company.According to the ED, the couple have “laundered unaccounted money of Rs 1.20 crore by taking accommodation entries from Jain Brothers and Shah, through mediators, in the form of share capital and share premium by various shell companies controlled by them.”The agency later conducted searches in several places. “Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd was registered at the address 25, Tuglak Road, New Delhi till the shares were brought by Bharti. It was only during the year 2009-10 that the address was changed to Farm No. 26 Palam Farms. Misa Bharti and Shailesh Kumar were the directors of the company during the relevant period,” an ED statement said

Derailment: Probe team to scan audio clip

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>An audio clip of a purported conversation between a railway employee and a mediaperson, in which the former claimed that “negligence” led to yesterday’s tragedy in Khatauli, would be looked into by a team probing the derailment, a top railway ministry official said today. Member Traffic, Railways, Md Jamshed said the inquiry team probing the derailment, in which 22 passengers were killed, would look into the 15-minute audio clip. The clip has since gone viral. In the clip, the railway staff apparently posted at a crossing near the accident site in Khatauli in Muzaffarnagar claimed that “poor patrolling” on the track where maintenance work was underway was one of the reasons behind the tragedy. “Welding work was underway at a section of the railway track… but the workers did not fix the block of the track and left it loose. Gates near the crossing were closed. A piece (of the track) was not fixed and when the Utkal Express arrived, 14 of its coaches got derailed,” he is heard saying. “Neither the line, on which the work was under way, was fixed nor they had put any flag or a signboard (as a stop signal). The accident occurred due to negligence. It seems all (employees concerned) will be suspended.” He also talks about how the workers had left some equipment between the tracks after finishing their work. “At least, they could have removed the machine and put a red flag there, perhaps the tragedy could have been averted,” the staffer, presumably a gateman, is heard saying. Commissioner of Railway Safety Shailesh Kumar Pathak is going to begin his probe tomorrow and the clip’s veracity will be probed, officials said. “We have got the clip from the media and heard it. In the clip, it sounds like a conversation between a railway worker and a mediaperson. In it, the worker is saying that the work was going on on the track and it was being done negligently. We are verifying its authenticity. “In fact, during the commissioner’s inquiry, the common people will be asked to provide any information that they have on the accident,” Jamshed said here earlier in the day.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Rlys to probe if work on track being done without permission

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The railways today indicated negligence could be the reason behind the derailment of the Utkal Express, with a senior official saying a probe would ascertain if any maintenance work was being done on the tracks without permission. It was not “clear” what kind of work was going on at the site, said Mohd Jamshed, Member, Traffic, Railways. “However, any work on tracks has to follow a manual. We have maintenance manuals which lay down guidelines for work on any kind of railway infrastructure,” he told the media here. A probe will ascertain if work was being carried out on the tracks and if so, whether the rules had been followed. The probe, which will begin tomorrow, will be conducted by the Commissioner, Railway Safety, Shailesh Kumar Pathak, who will look into “every angle, be it sabotage, technical lapse or manual fault”. Jamshed, who visited the spot in Khatauli where the accident occurred yesterday, killing 21 people, said he had seen maintenance tools on the tracks. “There is some audio clip of some conversation that we will probe. Also, when we did the site inspection, we saw some equipment the railways use for track repair present there.” he said. “Whenever this kind of a big accident happens, coaches get smashed, toppled, capsized and derailed. In this case, a 200-metre track has been damaged completely. It has to be investigated in detail. All measurements are being taken and every lapse is being taken into account,” Jamshed said. The senior officer also said the Railway Police had lodged an FIR in the case at Khatauli under Sections that included mischief causing destruction of railway property, causing death by negligence, causing grievous hurt, endangering life and personal safety. Explaining the procedure for maintenance followed by the railways, Jamshed wondered if it was followed in this case. “Fixed infrastructure on which the rail network runs like tracks, overhead equipment and signals are regularly maintained as per schedule. Maintenance of tracks is done during operations by blocking them as per requirement, according to fixed time and schedule. Written permission needs to be taken for this work,” he said. He also said sometimes repair needs to be done on an emergency basis, but even then, if the next station is informed, the consequent trains are stopped. “Then we get our supervisors on the track which is inspected and repaired after which the trains are allowed to run with a speed restriction. Red flags are also shown to trains in case there is a problem on the tracks,” he said. He said it would be investigated if these protocols were followed this time. “Prima facie the information is that there is divisional responsibility involved if work was being done without seeking permission. By this evening we will know if any of our staff was responsible for this,” he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Misa Bharti grilled for 8 hours by ED in money laundering case

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>RJD MP Misa Bharti was today grilled for nearly eight hours by Enforcement Directorate (ED) sleuths in connection with the agency’s probe into a Rs 8,000- crore money laundering case, officials said. Bharti, the daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, deposed before the investigating officer (IO) of the case at the central probe agency’s zonal office here shortly after 11 am. The officials said her statement was also recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). They said Bharti was questioned about her role in relation to a firm, M/s Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited, and her other finances and her links with a Chattered Accountant arrested by the agency earlier. The ED had on July 8 conducted searches at three Delhi farmhouses of Bharti, her husband Shailesh Kumar and the firm. Her husband Shailesh Kumar was also summoned yesterday but he reportedly skipped the date. The ED raids on July 8 had come a day after the CBI had raided multiple premises of Prasad and his family in a corruption case probe. The latest summons to Bharti and her husband are related to a Rs 8,000 crore money laundering probe being conducted by the agency against two Delhi-based businessmen brothers, Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain, and others who are alleged to have laundered several crore rupees using over 90 shell companies. The Jain brothers were arrested by the ED earlier under the PMLA. One of the firms that the arrested duo dealt with was Ms Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited. Bharti and her husband are alleged to have been directors of this firm in the past. The agency said it was detected that 1,20,000 shares of M/s Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited were bought during 2007-08 at a rate of Rs 100 per share by four shell companies — M/s Shalini Holdings Limited, M/s Ad-Fin Capital Services (India) Pvt. Ltd, M/s Mani Mala Delhi Properties Pvt. Ltd., and M/s Diamond Vinimay Pvt. Ltd. These 1,20,000 shares, it said, were allegedly bought back by Bharti at Rs 10 per share. The ED had also arrested Rajesh Agarwal, a Chartered Accountant allegedly linked to Bharti, who provided accommodation entries (black funds) of about Rs 60 lakh to M/s Mishail Printers and Packers Private Limited. The searches, they had said, are part of investigations to unravel these links which allegedly routed black money using the shell companies in question. Shell companies are firms set up with nominal paid up capital, high reserves, and surplus on account of receipt of high share premium, investment in unlisted companies and no dividend income or high amount of cash-in-hand. The ED is the third agency probing alleged financial irregularities by the Lalu Prasad family after the CBI and the Income Tax department which recently attached benami assets worth about Rs 180 crore (market value) in its investigation against them.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Derailed Ajmer-Sealdah Express had sub-standard coaches: Probe

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The inquiry into the derailment of the Ajmer-Sealdah Express on December 28, 2016, shows that some coaches were made of sub-standard material, and, therefore, the impact of the accident was much more on them.Sources told DNA that the Commission of Railway Safety (CRS) would soon submit its report to the government. The inquiry into the accident, which left more than 62 people injured, is almost concluded, sources said. They added that that CRS has sent samples of the axle, wheels and wagons to the National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur. “The result of the test is likely to come anytime soon,” a source said.Fifteen coaches of the train had derailed in Kanpur rural district. The accident took place near Rura railway Station, 70 km from Kanpur, when the train was crossing a bridge over a dry canal. The probe into the incident is being headed by Commissioner of Railway Safety (Northern Region), Shailesh Kumar Pathak.Sources told DNA that the CRS came to the conclusion that some coaches were made of bad material after it was found that some coaches, which should not have been impacted much, were found to be more damaged that the ones which were supposed to be worst-hit. According to a source, it was found that the coupling was broken at four places. A coupling (or a coupler) is a mechanism for connecting rolling stock in a train.”The wheels and axle of some coaches were particularly bent, which strongly indicated that some of them were of substandard material,” sources said. The draft inquiry report states that the impact of the accident would have been lesser, if the train had modern Linke Holfmann Bush (LHB) coaches instead of the old Integral Coach Factory (ICF)-designed ones, sources said.LHB coaches are safer as they do not turn turtle in case of a derailment since they are made of stainless steel. ICF coaches are made of mild steel. Sources also disclosed that the investigators have found no evidence of rail fracture. The Railways had earlier suspended four officials for alleged laxity on the basis of a separate departmental inquiry. The year 2016-2017 has been one of the worst years for the Railways as more than 225 were killed in accidents.
