Farooq Abdullah Summoned again by ED in alleged Money Laundering Case

Wattandaily.com – Farooq Abdullah, a veteran leader and former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, has once again been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) regarding an alleged money laundering case.

Last month, the 86-year-old, representing Srinagar in the Lok Sabha, was summoned but cited health reasons for not appearing at the agency’s offices in Srinagar.

This development occurs amidst a series of summons to opposition leaders ahead of the upcoming national elections scheduled for summer.

Following in the footsteps of Jharkhand’s former Chief Minister Hemant Soren and Delhi’s Arvind Kejriwal, Mr. Abdullah is now facing questioning by the ED.

The case centers around the alleged misappropriation of funds from the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA), purportedly diverted to personal bank accounts, including those of association office bearers. Between 2001 and 2012, the BCCI allocated ₹112 crore to JKCA for cricket development in the region.

The money laundering investigation commenced in 2018 following a chargesheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation against the office bearers.

Mr. Abdullah, who chaired the cricket association during the period in question, was chargesheeted by the Central agency in 2022.
