ED initiated a money-laundering investigation on the basis of five FIRs lodged at various police stations in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh against Singh and others.
"Dadan Singh has been a habitual offender and is accused of the several offences under Indian Penal Code, 1860 and Arms Act, 1959 for the crime related to attempt to murder, criminal conspiracy, cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property, forgery, use of Arms and Ammunition in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh," the ED had said.
In some cases, the agency said, Singh's wife Usha Devi and his son Kartar Singh Yadav are also co-accused.
"Money Laundering investigation carried so far has revealed that Dadan Singh has invested the proceeds of crime, for acquiring various immovable properties and deposits with bank in the name of his family members, so as to project them as untainted," the ED has said.
The former MLA has also attempted to disguise the acquisition of properties untainted by claiming the income from business and operation of companies, however, no such business or operative companies were found to be run by him and his family members. (ANI)
