The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, carried out searches against Jharkhand Congress MLA Amba Prasad and some others allegedly linked to her as part of a money laundering investigation. 

About 17-18 premises in Ranchi and some other cities of the State were being covered, the sources said. The 36-year-old legislator represents the Barkagaon assembly seat in Hazaribag district. 

A clutch of FIRs related to alleged illegal sand mining, extortion, and some other crimes have formed the basis of the ED action being undertaken under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
