Former chief minister and National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah is being questioned by Enforcement Directorate in Chandigarh in connection with Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) irregularity scam case. According to reports, the investigation is underway under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in Chandigarh.
In 2016, the Central Bureau of Investigation had filed a charge sheet against former Abdullah and three others in the alleged multi-crore scam in the state cricket association.
The charge sheet was filed in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Srinagar, Aijaz Ahmad Khan, who directed the agency to provide copies of the charge sheet to all the accused.
The Rs 113 crore fund scam in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) surfaced in 2012 and the CBI took over the investigations of the case from the state police in 2015 under orders of the state high court.
