The Enforcement Directorate has launched money laundering investigations against former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and others in case of alleged wrongful “re-allotment” of a plot to Associated Journals Limited (AJL) at Panchkula in 2005. AJL also owns National Herald.
The Haryana Police had registered a case in the matter two months back. According to police, AJL had been allotted the plot in 1982 for running its Hindi newspaper Navjeevan. However, the construction work was not completed, due to which the allotment was cancelled in 1992. AJL appealed against the cancellation, which was rejected.
