Hydrabad : Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday filed a charge sheet against Satyam Computers founder Ramalinga Raju and 212 others, including some firms, for allegedly laundering funds under a ‘corporate veil’ to perpetrate the accounting scam that rocked the business world.

ED filed a bulky prosecution investigation report before the XXI Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate cum Special Sessions Judge here today seeking to “prosecute the accused for the offence of money laundering” under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The ED report said that Ramalinga Raju and the other accused, who have also been probed by CBI, “derived proceeds of crime from the sale and pledge of inflated shares of M/s Satyam Computers and Services Ltd (SCSL)”.
The report further noted, “it transpires that the accused resorted to inter-connected transactions, so as to ensure that crime proceeds were distanced from its initial beneficiaries, and laundered the said proceeds under the cover of the corporate veil, with an ulterior motive to project the properties so acquired as untainted ones”.
