Cash amounting to an estimated Rs 20 to 30 crore was found at the residence of Sanjiv Lal, the aide to Jharkhand Rural Development minister Alamgir Alam. The ongoing counting process is anticipated to reveal a larger sum with the aid of cash machines.

On Monday, the Enforcement Directorate conducted raids at the property of a person associated with Jharkhand Rural Development Minister Alamgir Alam, as part of the Virendra Ram case investigation.

Acc. reported that over Rs 20 crores have been counted. Footage from the raids depicted stacks of currency notes in a room utilized by Sanjiv Lal’s household help, who serves as the private secretary to Alamgir Alam.

Last year, the Enforcement Directorate arrested Virendra Ram, a chief engineer at Jharkhand Rural Development Department, in a money laundering case related to purported irregularities in scheme implementation. Additionally, Ram’s assets worth Rs 39.29 crore were seized by Enforcement Directorate.
