Jalandhar, October 23
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Raninder Singh, son of Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh, in reference to a International Change Administration Act (FEMA) violation case, on October 27.
Earlier, Raninder had appeared earlier than the ED on July 21, 2016. He was then requested to elucidate the alleged motion of funds to Switzerland and creation of Jacaranda Belief and some subsidiaries in British Virgin Islands.
The ED summons have come at a time when its officers had sought to examine the I-T information in three circumstances towards him and the CM by an utility on September 14, 2020. Although the inspection was initially allowed, it was later stopped after Raninder submitted a revised petition saying the ED had no locus standi.
Raninder’s lawyer Jaiveer Shergill mentioned, “We are going to look at the summons and accordingly put up our case.” — TPR
