Koda to Be Arrested after Being Discharged from Hospital

Income Tax Department has made it clear that as soon as former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda is discharged from the hospital he will be arrested in a case pertaining to alleged hawala transactions and illegal investment worth hundreds of crores of rupees.

Besides, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and I-T department have instructed the ARA Memorial Weaver’s Hospital in Ranchi, where Koda is admitted and recovering, not to discharge him without giving them prior information.

Koda, who was admitted to the ICU of the hospital, has now been shifted to a room.

“We have been directed by both the IT and ED to inform them about his health bulletin and also tell them before we discharge Koda,” P D Sinha, Medical Superintendent of the Abdur Razzak Weavers’ Memorial Hospital, Appollo Group, said today.

“He was shifted from the ICU to a room in the ward around noon. He still has slight pain in his stomach,” the medical superintendent said.

Earlier, Koda’s house in Ranch was sealed by the I-T department.

In connection with alleged hawala transactions, the ED had also issued a summon to Koda and seven of his aides.

The summon requires Koda and his aides to be present before the directorate on November 9, 10, 11.

For obtaining material proof and documents recovered by the I-T department in connection with the alleged hawala transactions, an ED team from Delhi reached in Ranchi. Team will also source information from the records of the tax searches against Koda and others.

After witnessing nationwide raids for three days to unearth the assets of the former Jharkhand chief minister and his associates, Koda had on Tuesday complained of a pain in his abdomen, giddiness and vomiting. He was admitted to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Apollo Hospital in Ranchi.

The I-T department has set November 6 as the deadline for six of Koda’s alleged aides to appear before it to explain certain transactions and events. They have been told that if they fail to appear, they will be liable for legal action.
