Pakistani Singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan Issued Ed Notice

The Enforcement Directorate has issued a show-cause notice to singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and his manager Maroof Ali, both Pakistani nationals, for allegedly violating foreign exchange rules involving Rs 2.61 crore, officials said on Wednesday.

The notice, issued on Monday, has been served in a case that pertains to the seizure of undeclared US dollars from Khan at the Delhi airport in 2011. Khan and Ali both live in Pakistan.

"The show-cause notice has been served to Khan and Ali for violation of foreign exchange rules," an ED official said.

An ED statement said that Khan had engaged the late Chitresh Shrivastava (elder brother of Bollywood singer Aadesh Shrivastava) as global event manager, who used to collect payments on his behalf for various shows performed by him in India.

Major part of these payments were received in cash. This was illegally converted into US dollars through unauthorized sources by Shrivastava and the same was handed over to Khan, the ED said.

It said that Khan had illegally received $340,000 in India through unauthorized sources with the help of his event manager and with the support of his manager he had illegally taken out $225,000 out of India.

The ED has registered a case against Khan and Ali under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) for illegal dealings in foreign exchange and also some Indians for their involvement in supplying foreign currency unauthorizedly. This followed a case filed by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI).
