ED summons Farooq Abdullah in J&K Cricket Association money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) Monday issued a fresh summon to National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah for questioning in a money laundering case, news agency PTI reported. Previously,  Abdullah was called on  February 11 for questioning, however he did not appear.

The 86-year-old politician is understood to have been called in connection with the federal agency’s investigation into alleged irregularities in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA).

Abdullah, who is an MP from Srinagar in the Lok Sabha constituency, was charged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in 2022. ED officials said that the case pertains to the diversion of funds from the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) to different personal bank accounts of unrelated parties, which also included JKCA office bearers. Additionally, there were unexplained cash withdrawals from the JKCA bank accounts.

According to reports, the agency’s case is based on the same accused against whom the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a charge sheet in 2018.
