The Enforcement Directorate has summoned National Conference (NC) president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Thursday for questioning in a money laundering case.
The 86-year-old veteran politician in the Valley and MP from Srinagar is understood to have been called in connection with the ED’s investigation into alleged irregularities in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA), PTI news agency reported.
He was charge-sheeted by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the case in 2022.
The case involves diverting funds from the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association to different personal bank accounts, including those belonging to unrelated parties and JKCA office bearers. The funds were also withdrawn in cash from JKCA bank accounts, as alleged by the ED.
The summons has asked Abdullah to depose at the ED office in Srinagar.
