Another team carried out searches at his wife’s official residence in Patna near Haj Bhawan amid heavy security arrangement while the third team raided the two flats in Maa Marachhia Devi complex at Danapur.

According to people of the developments in ED, the former MLA bought flats at Maa Marachia Devi complex through his shell company -- Kiran Durga Contractors Pvt Ltd -- which claims to be engaged in the construction field.

Investigations have revealed that the former MLA’s assets are worth 9.90 crore and has over 72 immovable properties including plots and flats in Ara and Patna.

Reacting to ED raids, leader of opposition, Tejashwi Yadav, while talking to media persons in Katihar said the raids targeting opposition leaders by ED, CBI or IT department are proof that we are doing well and the BJP, which rules the Centre, was scared.
