Enforcement Directorate (ED) carrying out raids against Congress legislator Pradeep Yadav and associates at 12 locations across Jharkhand, including four in Ranchi and eight in Deoghar and surrounding areas. 

The deputy leader of the party in the state assembly, who has served as a five-time legislator representing the Poraiyahat seat, is currently under scrutiny. 

A comprehensive probe is underway under the PMLA, targeting the legislator and several others associated with him. As part of this investigation, approximately twelve locations linked to the MLA in the state are being subjected to rigorous raids.

The case is related to Income Tax (I-T) actions on Pradeep Yadav and others. The I-T dept conducted raids a few months ago and registered FIR. 

In the year 2022, the I-T department had conducted raids on Yadav, aged 57, along with another party legislator. The tax evasion investigation focused on certain business groups involved in activities such as coal trading and transportation, execution of civil contracts, extraction of iron ore, and production of sponge iron in Jharkhand. The ongoing money laundering inquiry has its roots in this previously conducted tax case.
