Ranchi: Jharkhand IAS officer Pooja Singhal was arrested in the MNREGA scam and a money laundering case was again produced in the ED court.
After hearing in the Special Court of ED she was again sent to Birsa Munda Central Jail till June 22. Earlier the ED has taken her on remand thrice. Jharkhand government has already suspended him from his post. About a month ago, the ED had raided more than 20 places in the country including the residence of Pooja Singhal. During this, the ED had recovered Rs 19.31 crore.
In this case, ED has questioned many people including Pooja Singhal’s husband Abhishek Jha, CA Suman Kumar. However, the ED has not yet received any data related to the transaction. A few days ago, the ED did a forensic investigation of the mobile phone of CA Suman Kumar arrested in the money laundering case where he got information about being in contact with some mining officials.
To investigate this matter the ED questioned the district mining officers of Pakur, Sahibganj, East Singhbhum, and West Singhbhum. A big revelation was revealed in this inquiry. Mining officials told that CA Suman Kumar used to demand money from the officers for getting the desired posting.
However, none of the officers admitted to giving money to CA Suman Kumar. Prem Prakash, who is considered close to the power trapped in the same episode, was also questioned by the ED but the ED has not been able to find the strings of this case till now. In the investigation, it definitely came to the fore that he used to interfere in the decision of the biggest cases.
