How many bank accounts of Shahjahan Sheikh have been ‘frozen’ by ED?

ED ‘freezes’ Shahjahan Sheikh’s bank account. According to ED sources, information regarding the transactions of several other bank accounts has also been sought. According to ED sources, initially, the investigators received details of transactions of Rs 137 crore through multiple bank accounts of Shahjahan. Around 15 bank accounts are under the watch of ED officials.

According to ED sources, Shahjahan used to smuggle black money earned through various crimes under the guise of the fish trade. The ‘Sheikh’ of Sandeshkhali used to give his money in one hand and take it back in the other. To explain a little more, Shah Jahan first handed over cash to an individual or institution. He then asked to deposit the money into his account through the bank. He named the fish shop after his daughter.

ED has two ECIRs against Shahjahan. One is ration distribution corruption, and another is illegal land grabbing and fishing. There are even cases of illegal transactions worth crores of rupees abroad through fish import-export. Shahjahan was sent to jail from CBI custody last Friday. The lawyers of ED requested to interrogate Shahjahan in the correctional facility on Saturday morning in the case of illegal land acquisition and fish import-export business. The court granted the application. After this, Shahjahan was interrogated by ED investigators from noon to afternoon on Saturday. After that, he was arrested.
