ED Issues Fresh Summons to Sonia
The Congress president is set to be questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in an alleged money laundering case and she will appear before the probe agency on 23 June. Gandhi had asked the agency for three more weeks as she was still COVID-19 positive.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's interrogation by the ED resumed on Monday, 20 June. The fourth round of questioning comes after his request to postpone the summons was approved considering the illness of his mother.
He had requested the agency to give him relaxation from appearing for questioning from 17 to 20 June.
What Is the Case?
The ED wants to record the statements of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi under criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The questioning of the Gandhis is part of the ED's investigation to understand the shareholding pattern, financial transactions, and role of the promoters of Young Indian and AJL, officials had said.
