The Enforcement Directorate (ED), on Friday summoned former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti to its Delhi office in connection with a money laundering case.
According to a notice served to former CM Mehbooba Mufti today by the probing agency, the Enforcement Directorate has asked the PDP president to be present in its New Delhi office on March 15 at about 11; 30 hours for questioning in connection with money laundering case.
As per the notice Mehbooba has also been asked to be present along with required documents.
Pertinently, a few months back PDP chief had accused ruling Modi led BJP of using investigating agencies against her party cadres. Another former chief minister and sitting Member Parliament from Srinagar Constituency, Farooq Abdullah was twice summoned by the ED in connection with the same case.
Earlier Mehbooba Mufti, said that the Kashmir issue was not about roads and development but a “far bigger issue”.
Jammu and Kashmir issue is not about roads and lanes but a far bigger issue. When there is peace, roads and lanes would be laid automatically. They can be even made by DDC members elected recently,” she said addressing party workers in Anantnag district of south Kashmir.
“People of Jammu and Kashmir have been living through uneasiness and anxiety for last 70 years. Thousands of people have been sacrificed whether a militant, a surrendered militant, a common man, a policeman or a security forces personnel,” Mehbooba said.
Mehbooba further adding, “There are ten lakh soldiers and their presence signifies that a Kashmiri has an issue which needs resolution.”
She said that “whatever India has taken away should be returned back with interest.”
“Why are you getting angry? If I do not ask you, should I ask Pakistan? We are asking for return from the Parliament which snatched our respect and pride. Snatched our identity,” she said.
She further said, “People of Kashmir have been fighting from last 70 years irrespective of methodology adopted.” KDC
