ED issues fresh summons to NC chief Farooq Abdullah in JKCA money laundering case.

The Enforcement Directorate has summoned National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah for interrogation in a money laundering case involving the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA), official sources stated Monday.

He has been summoned to appear at the ED office in Srinagar on Tuesday.

The 86-year-old politician was summoned by the central agency for this matter on January 11, but he did not appear.

He is not expected to appear at the Srinagar office of the central agency this time too, sources close to him said.

The ED investigation pertains to alleged financial irregularities at the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association.

The MP from Srinagar was charge-sheeted by the Enforcement Directorate in this case in 2022.

The case relates to siphoning off JKCA funds by way of transfer to various personal bank accounts of unrelated parties, including those of JKCA office-bearers, and by way of unexplained cash withdrawals from its bank accounts, the ED had said.

The agency’s case is based on a 2018 charge-sheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against the same accused.
