Enforcement Directorate (ED) officer Rajeshwar Singh is likely to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in a few weeks. Rajeshwar Singh, originally an encounter specialist of Uttar Pradesh Police, had joined the ED on deputation in 2009. He has handled important matters including the 2G spectrum allocation scam and matters arising out of it including the Aircel-Maxis deal.

From 2010 to 2018, Rajeshwar Singh also handled the Commonwealth Games scam and irregularities in coal allocation, which shook the UPA government by rocking the AgustaWestland helicopter deal. Apart from this, he played an important role in the investigation and action against former Union Minister P. Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram. Both were accused of corruption.

Rajeshwar Singh was also part of the investigation into corruption cases which led to action against CM OP Chautala, Madhu Koda and Jagan Mohan Reddy.

For handling politically sensitive cases of money laundering, he was protected by the Supreme Court in 2014 and absorbed in the ED on the directions of the apex court. Rajeshwar Singh did his engineering from the Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad. He also has degrees in subjects related to law and human rights.

After a long leave, Jajeshwar Singh is now posted at the Lucknow office of the ED. He has 12 years of service left. The government had started an investigation against him in 2018, but nothing significant came out of the investigation.
