The enforcement directorate raided a dozen sites in Jharkhand and West Bengal on Friday as part of a money laundering investigation into alleged use of forged papers to sell defense land in these states, officials said.

The federal agency is searching about eight locations in Ranchi and adjacent areas and four places in Kolkata, including the property linked to arrested businessman Amit Agarwal.

Some real estate dealers, individuals and affiliated entities are being searched by ED teams, they said.

The probe stems from a Jharkhand Police FIR filed to investigate alleged use of forged papers in the sale and purchase of defense land, they said.

Agarwal was arrested by the ED last month on charges of allegedly conspiring to “capture” Rajeev Kumar, a lawyer representing a petitioner in two PILs filed against Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren.

This case is also linked to the alleged illegal mining case under investigation by the ED in which it recently summoned Soren and arrested one of his aides and two others.
