The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday summoned Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh's son Raninder Singh for violation of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) in connection with an alleged disproportionate assets case. The ED asked him to appear before them on October 27, in Jalandhar.
Official sources informed IANS that Raninder has been summoned by the agency at its Jalandhar office on Tuesday 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.
