A vigilance team raided the house of former Vidhan Sabha Deputy Speaker and MLA Rikhi Ram Kaundal at Jol-Gharaan village, near Shah Talai. A team was led by DSP Taranjit Singh.

Raid was carried out on the orders of a special judge here after an RTI activist, Rajesh Mishra, filed an application regarding various disparities in assets of the minister in his nomination papers, which he has filed earlier in 2007 and now in 2012 poll to the Election Commission.

MLA Rikhi Ram Kaundal was present in the house when vigilance team raided his house and claimed that he had not done anything wrong and said that he is ready for any investigation.
