Links between scam money in Koda case and Naxals?

New Delhi, Nov 13 (PTI) Did the ill-gotten money of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda and his associates allegedly involved in the Hawala and illegal investments case find its way to Naxal groups?

Questions were raised today in this regard after scrutiny of documents recovered by the Income Tax and Enforcement Directorate by Central security agencies indicated that some companies in which illegal investments were made were actually a front for the naxal groups.

It has come to light that a portion of money was regularly being transferred to these companies which was finding its way to fund activities of naxal groups operating in the mineral-rich state.

ED officials claimed they had come across documents suggesting that the former ministers had amassed huge wealth including mines, real estate firms and properties in Hong Kong, Thailand and some other countries
