In a major development in the National Herald case, the ED on Tuesday attached assets worth Rs. 751.9 crore as part of a money laundering probe. These include properties of organizations linked to the Congress: Rs. 661cr-worth immovable properties of Associated Journals Limited (AJL) across Delhi, Mumbai, and Lucknow and Young Indian (YI)'s equity shares of AJL worth Rs. 90.21cr. The Congress has termed the ED's move "petty vendetta tactics" amid the ongoing assembly elections in five states.
