ED Summons Former J&K CM Farooq Abdullah In Money Laundering Case

The Enforcement Directorate has issued summons for former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah, reported ANI on Thursday. The National Conference leader has been asked to appear before the enforcement agency’s office in Srinagar on Thursday. 

Reacting to the development, Congress called it a “political vendetta” saying Abdullah being a tall leader was “bound to be punished”. 

“Farooq Abdullah is a tall leader. He was a Union Minister too and is a bold voice of the INDIA Alliance today. His father and he took strong political steps regarding Kashmir…So, he was bound to be punished. I think this is political vendetta,” said Congress MP Pramod Tiwari while speaking to news agency ANI.
