Jalandhar, September 27
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh's son Raninder Singh has been asked to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on November 6 in connection with a probe into the latter's involvement in alleged forex contraventions and holding untaxed foreign assets.
Singh, did not appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday in the alleged Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) violation case.
The source said that taking view of the application of Raninder Singh, he has been asked to join the probe on November 6.
He was summoned by the ED on October 23 at its Jalandhar office to explain the alleged movement of funds to Switzerland and creation of a trust in the tax haven of British Virgin Islands.
With the Amarinder Singh-led Congress government bringing state Bills earlier this week to negate the Central farm laws to pacify the agitating farmers in the state, the move to summon his son assumes significant political importance.
Raninder has sought an adjournment from the ED.
His lawyer and Congress Spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said, "My client is required to be present before the Parliamentary Standing Committee for a hearing in relation to Olympic Games 2021 and has also sought details from ED of the case in relation to which he has been summoned, as the summon is vague."—with IANS
