Cash-For-Query Probe: ED Files Money Laundering Case Against TMC Leader Mahua Moitra

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday registered a money laundering case against Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra in the cash-for-query probe. The action came based on an FIR  filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against the expelled leader.

Notably, the 49-year-old politician skipped the summons by the agency that asked her to appear for questioning in its Delhi office.

Both Moitra and businessman Darshan Hiranandani had been served summons by the ED for questioning in a Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) contravention case. The CBI had raided her house in connection with the cash-for-query case, days after anti-corruption ombudsman Lokpal directed the federal agency to investigate the allegations levelled against her by BJP MP Nishikant Dubey.
