Today, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued summons to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Secretary Pankaj Gupta. The case is related to money laundering, which also includes Congress leader and MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
Talking to the media, AAP leader and national spokesperson Raghav Chadha informed that the party has received a notice from the ED. Previously in March, the ED had raided the premises of Sukhpal Singh Khaira and his family members in Delhi in the money-laundering case linked to the 2015 Fazilka narcotics trafficking case and a fake passport racket. The probing agency accused Khaira of being an associate of drug case convicts and fake passport racketeers.
Meanwhile, Chadha slammed BJP and referred to ED’s notice as ‘love letter from Modi Government’s favourite agency’. He stated that the BJP is ‘rattled’.
The notice from the ED comes amid a tussle between the AAP and the BJP. This also comes at a time when several key assembly elections are scheduled to take place in Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh.
