RANCHI — The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday was conducting raids at various locations, including the residences of Jharkhand Rural Development Minister Alamgir Alam’s personal assistant (PA) Sanjeev Kumar and several others in Ranchi.

A mountain of cash worth crores was recovered from the house of a person working at Sanjeev Kumar’s residence. It is reported that this amount could be more than INR 25 crore.

Footage from the raid depicts a large pile of currency notes strewn across a room allegedly belonging to the domestic helper of Sanjeev Kumar.

The 70-year-old Minister is a Congress leader representing the Pakur constituency in the Jharkhand Assembly.

The recent raids, conducted under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), have targeted over nine locations, including the residence of Engineer Vikas Kumar who was associated with Virendra Ram, the former chief engineer at the Jharkhand Rural Development Department, and his close associates.
