Watch: Income Tax Raid Reveals Huge Cash Hoard; Rs 20 Crore Seized From Secretary of Jharkhand Minister

The money was found in the possession of Sanjiv Lal, who serves as the personal secretary to Jharkhand Minister Alamgir Alam, during the Veerendra Ram case investigation.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) announced on Monday that they have discovered a substantial amount of “unaccounted” cash during their search of properties allegedly associated with Jharkhand Rural Development Minister Alamgir Alam’s Personal Secretary, Sanjiv Lal.

Reports indicate that the agency found approximately Rs 20 crore in cash at the residence of Sanjiv Lal, who serves as the Personal Secretary to Alamgir Alam.

Video footage from the raid depicted bundles of currency notes spread out in a room believed to belong to the domestic staff of Sanjiv Lal, the Personal Secretary to Alamgir Alam.

The searches were conducted as part of an investigation into a money laundering case involving the former chief engineer of the rural development department, Virendra K Ram. He was arrested by the probe agency last year for allegedly accumulating assets worth Rs 100 crore through irregularities in the implementation of certain schemes.
Virendra K Ram was arrested by the ED in February 2023 in connection with a money laundering case related to alleged irregularities in the implementation of various schemes. During his arrest, a pen drive containing purported transaction details with some Jharkhand politicians was seized from him.
Nishikant Dubey, BJP MP from Godda, Jharkhand, shared a video of the ED raid on premises linked to Sanjiv Lal, the personal secretary to state minister Alamgir Alam. He stated, “More than Rs 30 crore and counting… Today, the ED took significant action against Sanjeev Lal, the personal secretary of Congress Legislative Party leader and the alleged corruption king of the Hemant Soren government, Minister Alamgir Alam.”
