The Executive Office (ED) made these allegations on Wednesday in a remand memo submitted to a special court seeking increased custody of West Bengal police officer Ashok Kumar Mishra, who is also an inspector at the Bankura police station.
Police officers were arrested by the ED in a case involving local trader Anup Majhi, also known as Lala, as the prime suspect, with the exception of Vinay Mishra’s brother Vikas Mishra, the leader of TMC’s youth division.
The inspector was arrested here by the ED on April 3, and the court held him in custody until Wednesday. The court extended his ED remand until April 12.
The ED proceedings under the Anti-Money Laundering Act (PMLA) filed a November 2020 FIR of CBI alleging multinational coal theft fraud related to Eastern Coal Fields mines in and around the state’s Kunastoria and Kayola regions. Submitted after investigation. Asansole.
In a memorandum of remand, the ED claimed that certain illegal mining cases were flourishing in the state under the “sponsorship” of political parties. The agency connected police officers to Maji, Vinay, and Bikas Mishra, and went all the way up to Abhishek Bachnersey’s family.
Diamond Harbor MP has denied these claims. “All coal assets are directly under the center and protected by a central agency. If BJP considers TMC leaders to have earned money from people who illegally manage their coal assets, the center will consider these. What prevents us from investigating all the criminals who couldn’t control the country’s assets? ”He tweeted earlier this week.
“Also, according to BJP, coal and interior ministry officials absolutely obeyed the orders of TMC leaders rather than listening to their boss’s (modisher’s) orders. It’s hilarious. Who are you fooling? ”
The ED shows that documents seized from Majhi and Niraj Singh “maintained a detailed coded record of the former being paid to various entities from the proceeds of crimes arising from illegal mines.” Said that.
“… and in less than two years, it was revealed that Maji had illegally generated an amount of Rs 1,352 through an illegal coal mine,” the agency claimed.
“The investigation also revealed a deeply politically-sponsored system and a well-oiled network in which the system was destroyed to bravely carry out these illegal activities.”
Citing a recorded statement of a seriously unidentified “close companion,” the ED said that Kingpin, alleged of this coal theft fraud, managed the senior functions of West Bengal’s political parties through his “Mishra Inspector.” He went smoothly with his illegal coal mine business. ”
An unidentified “witness” statement said, “It is known that Vinay Mishra raised money from the illegal mines of Maji and his associates for the political boss who is closely related to the current ruling party. Vinay Mishra is a youth leader of the TMC, he is very close to Abhishek Bachnersey, and he (Vinai Mishra) is the eyes and ears of Abhishek Bachnersey. ”
The ED also attached a recorded statement by an inspector allegedly stating that “Vinay Mishra was the secretary of the TMC and was very close to Parliamentarian Abhishek Banerjee.”
Police officers have sent ED 1-1.5 rupees from the state to Delhi at the direction of Vinay Mishra, who said, “Knowing political pressure and his (Vinai Mishra) influence within the party. It was done under being. ” ) I have to obey him. Otherwise his career will end.
“He (Mishra inspector) facilitated the transfer of funds from India to London through non-bank channels for his close relatives of Abhishek Bachnersey, and the funds were remitted by Niraji Singh (a serious accountant). It was. ”
“The message regarding the transfer of money from India to Thailand was forwarded to him by either Vikas or Niraj Singh, and the Thai subject transaction is related to Abhishek Banerjee’s close relative (wife), Rujira Banerjee,” ED said. I’m quoting. A statement recorded by that of Mishra Inspector.
According to PMLA’s criminal law system, statements made during an investigation under the law are acceptable in court.
Authorities said the seized document “Seriously helped send large sums of money from criminal proceeds to relatives (wife and sister-in-law) in London and Thailand’s Abhishek Bachnersey.” Claimed to be.
The ED said police inspectors “became part of the evil axis of coal mafia, corrupt politicians, corrupt civil servants … and he earned 168 rupees of contaminated money in just 109 days from the serious. There is evidence that it was received, including Vinay Mishra, for himself. ”
“He is a government official, but he works closely with the coal mafia to transfer contaminated funds raised from illegal coal mining operations to the overseas bank accounts of politically influential people and their close relatives in West Bengal. I was involved in sending money, “ED claimed.
The incident regained political ties after Abhishek Bachnersey’s wife, Luzirah, was questioned by the CBI some time ago. The state is in the middle of an eight-step vote for a 294-seat assembly.
