New Delhi, Sep 11 (IANS) The Income Tax Department on Monday issued final orders to attach properties of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tejashwi Yadav, his daughter Misa Bharati and her husband Shailesh Kumar, in Patna and Delhi, in connection with benami properties case, officials said.

The properties attached include a house in Delhi's upmarket New Friends Colony, a farm house in Bijwasan area of the national capital and nine plots in Jalalpur area of Patna in Bihar.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had on September 5 attached Misa Bharti's property in Bijwasan here in connection with a money laundering case.

The farmhouse "Palam Farms" was bought from the money raised through shell companies owned by Bharti and her husband, the ED had said.

The Income Tax Department is probing how four shell shell companies -- AB Exports Pvt Ltd, Delight Marketing Pvt Ltd, AK Info Systems and Mishail Packers and Printers Pvt Ltd -- were used by Lalu Prasad and his family to buy expensive properties in Delhi and Patna through benami transactions.
