5 Big Actions of ED: At present, there is talk of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) from West Bengal to Delhi. And there are leaders of many opposition parties in this clutches.

The names are also very big, from Congress's Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi to former minister Partha Chatterjee in Bengal, National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah, Aam Aadmi Party leader Satyendra Jain to NCP leader Anil Deshmukh in Maharashtra, and Nawab Malik.

There is a long list of opposition parties. Today we are telling you about some such cases, in which many opposition leaders are trapped.

In the action of ED, cash worth more than Rs 60 crore has been received from Arpita's house so far. And the situation has become such that Mamata Banerjee has not only had to remove her very close friend Partha Chatterjee from the post of the minister but she has also been suspended from the party.

Similarly, the Saradha scam remains a problem for Mamata Banerjee in Bengal. In the year 2013, the revelations of the Saradha Group's chit fund scam had created a stir in the politics of Bengal.

The names of many Trinamool Congress leaders were revealed in this scam.

The state government's investigative team had arrested Saradha Group chief Sudipta Sen and his aide Debjani.

ED and CBI have been probing this case for the last 8 years. In this case, Madan Mitra, the then minister in the Mamata government, was arrested.

Apart from this, MP Mukul Roy also had to face CBI's interrogation.

Later Mukul Roy joined the BJP, although now again joined the Trinamool Congress.

2. National Herald Case

ED's inquiry in the National Herald case has now reached the Gandhi family. The ED is first questioning Rahul Gandhi and now Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi.

The matter pertains to a company named 'Young India Private Limited and the deal with Associated Journals Limited (AJL). Motilal Vora, Suman Dubey, Oscar Fernandes and Sam Pitroda were made directors in Young India, including Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.

Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi held 76 per cent of the shares in the news company while other directors held the remaining 24 per cent.

After this, the Congress party gave a loan of Rs 90 crore to this company. And later Young India acquired 'AJL'. There is a case of money laundering going on.

3. Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association Scam

ED has also filed a supplementary chargesheet against National Conference chief and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah.

The case pertains to the scam in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association. Farooq Abdullah and other accused have been questioned several times in this case.

Farooq Abdullah was the president of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association and the chief minister of the state when the scam happened.

During this, a fund of Rs 113 crore was provided by the Central Government through the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association to promote the game in the state.

But it is alleged that a huge amount in that fund was used elsewhere.

4. Hawala Case

The ED has filed a charge sheet against AAP leader and former Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain.
