New Delhi: A special court on Monday granted bail to RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti and her husband in a money laundering case.
Special Judge Arvind Kumar granted the relief to Bharti and her husband Shailesh Kumar, who appeared before the court in pursuance to summons issued against them, on a personal bond of Rs two lakh with a surety of a like amount each and directed them not to leave the country without prior permission of the court. The two had moved bail applications.
During the hearing, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) opposed the bail plea of the accused, saying they indulged in a “very serious” economic offence. “Persons on such a post are committing such kind of activities which are totally against the nation,” ED counsel Atul Tripathi said.
