Days after seizing Rs 37 crore during raids in Ranchi, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday arrested Jharkhand's rural development minister Alamgir Alam in connection with a money laundering case.

The development came a day after he was grilled for over nine hours by the central probe agency.

On May 6, ED raided the apartment of Jahangir Alam, the house help of Alamgir Alam’s personal secretary Sanjeev Lal, and confiscated over Rs 37 crore in cash. Both Alam and Lal were arrested after the raid.

The raids were in connection with an ongoing investigation into a money laundering case against Virendra K Ram, former chief engineer of the Jharkhand Rural Development Department, who was arrested last year.

It was linked to alleged irregularities in the implementation of some schemes in the department.
