Saumya Chaurasia Arrested: ED has arrested Saumya Chaurasia, deputy secretary of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, from Raipur in the money laundering case. He has been taken to the medical for the time being.
In February 2020, the Income Tax Department also raided the house of Soumya Chaurasia, deputy secretary of CM Bhupesh Baghel. Chief Minister Baghel called it an act of political vendetta.
Along with this, he had claimed that by doing this, an attempt was being made to destabilize the government. On the other hand, the Income Tax Department (IT) had told in June 2021 that it has busted an alleged hawala racket worth more than Rs 100 crore after raids in Chhattisgarh’s capital Raipur.
