Mumbai, June 28

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Tuesday sought more time to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money-laundering probe, an official said.

The ED had summoned Rajya Sabha member Raut on Tuesday for questioning in the money-laundering probe linked to the re-development of a Mumbai 'chawl' and other related financial transactions involving his wife and friends.

The development comes as the Shiv Sena battles rebellion from a group of its MLAs, putting a question mark on the future of Maharashtra's Maha Vikas Aghadi government. Raut was not available on Tuesday due to his planned visit to Alibaug (Raigad district), following which his lawyer reached the ED's office here at around 11.15am to seek more time, the official said.

The lawyer submitted a letter to the ED officials, requesting time for Raut to appear before the probe agency, he said.

Raut on Monday had termed the ED’s summons as a “conspiracy” to stop him from fighting against their political opponents, and said he would not be able to appear before the agency on Tuesday as he had to attend a meeting in Alibaug.
