In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a court in Srinagar on Saturday summoned National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah in a money laundering case related to the financial ir-regularities in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket As-sociation (JKCA).
The principal District and Sessions Judge, Sri-nagar, issued the summons against Farooq Abdullah for August 27 on a complaint filed by the Enforce-ment Directorate (ED) against him and others in the JKCA money laundering case.
He was JKCA president from 2001 to 2012 and the “scam” being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the ED is about financial misappropriation between 2004 and 2009.
The ED has attached properties worth over Rs 21 crore already. This includes Rs 11.86 crore of im-movable assets belonging to Farooq Abdullah.—KMS
