ED summons former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti in money laundering case

 The Enforcement Directorate on Friday summoned former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti for questioning on March 15 in a money laundering case, officials said.

The 60-year-old PDP leader, who was released last year after more than a year in detention, has been served notice to appear at the ED headquarters in the national capital.

The case has been filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, officials said. No more details about the case were available immediately.

A team of the federal agency reached Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief’s Fairview house with a summon, which wasn’t received by her family. “People had come with the summon but Mehbooba Mufti wasn’t in the town so nobody received the summon,” her party’s spokesperson Suhail Bukhari said. Her family does not have any information regarding what the summon was about, he added.

The case has been filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, news agency PTI reports citing officials.

More details are awaited.

The development comes days after her party unanimously re-elected her as the president of JKPDP, which was formed by Mufti’s father and former J&K chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in 1999.
