IT raids in benami deals linked to Lalu Prasad Yadav

IT raids in benami deals linked to Lalu Prasad Yadav

A team of about 100 income tax officials and policemen conducted the raids at homes and offices of several prominent businessmen and real estate agents in Delhi, Gurgaon and Rewari since morning.

Also, I-T investigators have raided the buildings of RJD MP P C Gupta's son.

In the wake of Income Tax raids conducted on 22 properties in Delhi in connection with proxy land deals worth Rs 1,000 crore allegedly made by RJD chief Lalu Prasad, the senior leader has claimed that the BJP is targeting him for his strident criticism of the central government.

Microsoft puts out periodic security patches to the software and sometimes, they apply to all versions of the operating systems. The ransomware attack exploits a vulnerability in older Windows OS, including Windows 8, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 .

As per sources, the raids are being conducted on the charges of illegal (benami) land deals worth Rs. 1,000 crore.

Former Bihar chief minister Prasad reacted sharply to the raids, saying he won't be cowed down "by the BJP's political vendetta". However, he did not elaborate who the "new alliance partners" were. Lalu Prasad jhukney aur darney wala nahin. "Jab tak aakhri saans hain fashiwaadi takhto ke saath lartha rahunga", he tweeted. "The media is reporting that 22 locations have been raided, which are those 22 locations", Nitish said, on the sidelines of Bihar cabinet meeting on Tuesday evening.

Lalu's RJD is a constituent of Bihar's ruling coalition led by Nitish Kumar.

Oil on longest rising streak in more than a month
West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $49.10, up 25 cents, or 0.51 percent from their last settlement. The announcement was later supported by Kuwait's oil minister Essam al-Marzouq.

But when BJP workers started shouting slogans like "Lalu Chor hai" "Charaa Chor hai", "Lalu ko jail bhejo", the RJD workers got angry.

The BJP leader stuck to his demand for the sacking of Prasad's sons, Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav, for their alleged involvement in the purchase of benami properties through shell companies, which they had not declared in their election affidavit.

In this case, too, all properties of the company were transferred in the name of Prasad's family members, he said, adding this firm also did not have any business, employees nor any turnover. "The reality of the situation will become obvious eventually that the assault directed by these organisations was a direct result of any abnormalities or it was only a political contrivance", JD (U) pioneer K.C. Tyagi told ANI. "Land worth crores of rupees was grabbed for a pittance", he had said. He had also alleged that the state's biggest shopping mall that is coming up in Patna is part of such questionable transactions.
