The Directorate of Enforcement (ED) on February 12 issued fresh summons to National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah for questioning in connection with the Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association money laundering case, sources said.
The former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister was earlier summoned for questioning on January 11 but did not appear before the central agency.
In July 2022, the ED filed a supplementary chargesheet against Farooq Abdullah in the case.
The case relates to the alleged siphoning-off of Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association (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 JKCA bank accounts, according to the ED.
The central agency’s case against the NC patriarch is based on a 2018 chargesheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against him.
