RANCHI: The CBI special court issued orders to attach the property of absconding MLA Sita Soren, sister-in-law of chief minister Hemant Soren, on Saturday. She is wanted in the horse-trading case of 2012 Rajya Sabha elections.

Rejecting anticipatory bail petition in July 2013, the CBI special court had declared her a proclaimed offender and also passed a non-bailable warrant against her on August 5, 2013.

On the behest of CBI counsel, the court of CBI special judge R K Choudhary issued attachment orders on Saturday. The Jharkhand high court had sought a report from the CBI and state police about the status of investigation in September last year.

Sita has been accused of distributing Rs 1.5 crore in the first chargesheet filed by CBI in May last year. According to CBI officials, evidences against her prove that Soren tried to buy votes in favour of independent candidate Pawan Dhoot. Earlier, an FIR was also lodged against her by Reena Devi for allegedly kidnapping her husband Vikas Pandey, who had turned CBI approver in the horse-trading case.

Sita evaded arrest and finally obtained an interim bail from the Supreme Court, ahead of the vote of trust of Hemant government on July 18 last year. She had appeared in the assembly for trust vote but was not detained for interrogation by CBI. She has not appeared before the CBI even once.
