ED Seizes TMC Leader Shahjahan Sheikh’s Assets Worth ₹12.78 Crore

On the same day the Calcutta High Court transferred the Sandeshkhali violence probe to the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate provisionally attached assets worth ₹12.78 crore belonging to suspended Trinamool Congress leader Shahjahan Sheikh. These assets, including 14 immovable properties and two bank accounts, were seized under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002. The investigation stems from multiple FIRs filed by the West Bengal Police against Sheikh for various offenses, including threats, extortion, and land grabbing. Sheikh, who had been evading arrest, was apprehended by authorities on February 29th after a mob, allegedly linked to him, attacked ED officials during a raid related to a ration scam case. The ED alleges that Sheikh acquired these assets through criminal activities mentioned in the FIRs.
