ED To Grill Mumbai Ex-Mayor Kishori Pednekar, Sanjay Raut’s Brother Over Covid Body Bag Scam

The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday will question former Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar in connection with the Covid body bag scam and Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut’s brother Sandeep Raut in the Covid Khichdi scam case, reported ANI. 

This comes after Shiv Sena (Uddhav Thackeray faction) leader Kishori Pednekar failed to appear before the ED on January 25. The ED has alleged that a company was selling body bags for Covid victims for Rs 2,000 in the market. However, the same company was giving the product to the Central Procurement Department for Rs 6,800. The contract was signed by the then Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation mayor Pednekar.
