Cash-for-query case: After CBI, now ED files FIR against Mahua Moitra, Hiranandani

New Delhi,. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a money laundering case against expelled Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra and businessman Darshan Hiranandani in the cash-for-query case.

According to sources, the financial probe agency took cognizance of the CBI FIR already registered in the case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Earlier, ED had registered a case against Mahua Moitra under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).

On March 27, the ED had issued a third summons to the Trinamool leader for questioning in the FEMA violation case, which he ignored. Mahua did not appear even on 19 February and 11 March.

According to ED sources, Mahua was asked to produce some documents related to foreign investment related to the ongoing investigation.

Mahua Moitra is embroiled in controversy over allegations of taking cash in return for asking questions in the Lok Sabha on behalf of Hiranandani.
