The home of Agrasen Gehlot, the brother of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, was searched by the Central Bureau of Investigation today. The probe agency team has also gone to Agrasen Gehlot’s business office, sources have said.
Agrasen Gehlot is already under the scan of the Enforcement Directorate, or ED, for alleged wrongdoing in a fertilizer export case. The ED alleges that in 2007 and 2009, large quantities of fertilizer were illegally exported.
In the fertiliser case, the ED has launched a probe against Saraf Impex and others under the Prevention of Mony Laundering Act, or PMLA. Anupam Krishi, the firm owned by Agrasen Gehlot, allegedly exported potash through Saraf Impex. The exported fertiliser was meant for farmers in Rajasthan, the ED had said.
