Jalandhar, December 7

Enforcement Directorate officials conducted raids at the residences and offices of district Congress chief (rural) Sukhwinder Lally on Friday in a suspected case of hawala transactions by him and his associates.

The raids were conducted at six places, including Lally’s residence at Nangal Shama, office of Dreamland Properties in Model Town and another office at BSF Chowk.

Lally has allegedly set up businesses in Canada, US and Australia and has accounts in foreign banks with illegal capital from here. The ED officials who raided the premises on the instructions of Deputy Director Niranjan Singh are learnt to have gathered a lot of documents to build up a case for the alleged violations of FEMA and track the financial transactions of the DCC chief. Some documents pointing to “benami” properties, too, have been reportedly found.

Lally has been reportedly served a summons by Niranjan Singh for December 9. Lally’s associate in Dreamland Properties Bhupinder Singh Bhinda, too, has been issued summons for the same day. PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar has convened a meeting of party workers in Jalandhar on the same day.
