ED Conduct Raids at RJD MLA Kiran Devi’s Premises in Bihar

Kiran Devi

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) reportedly conducted searches on Tuesday at premises associated with RJD MLA Kiran Devi in Ara, located in Bihar’s Bhojpur district.

These searches are part of an investigation into money laundering related to an illegal sand-mining case involving Kiran Devi and her husband, Arun Yadav, who is also a former MLA. Arun Yadav is also under scrutiny by central probe agencies in connection with an alleged land-for-job scam involving RJD leader Lalu Prasad and his family members.

The duo is also being investigated by the ED regarding the illegal sand mining case. Kiran Devi serves as the RJD MLA representing the Sandesh constituency in Bhojpur district, while her husband, Arun Kumar Yadav, previously represented the same constituency in the Sandesh assembly (from 2015 to 2020).

According to sources, when ED officials arrived at Kiran Devi’s residence on Tuesday morning, the MLA was not present.

Searches were also conducted at locations linked to the MLA in Agiaon, Bhojpur. Last year, central probe agency officials had also raided Arun Yadav’s premises in Bhojpur in connection with the land-for-job scam and illegal sand mining case.
