The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has again served a fresh notice to Abhishek Banerjee asking him to appear before the ED sleuths in Delhi on September 21. This is the third notice served to Abhishek this month in the alleged coal smuggling case.
Earlier on September 6, the Trinamool Congress' national general secretary appeared before the ED officials and he was interrogated for nine hours. The next day again he was asked to come to the office but he replied that it was impossible for him to appear because of his pre-scheduled political programs.
The central agency again served a notice asking him to appear on September 21.
The interrogation of Mamata Banerjee's nephew has sparked debate across political circles with Bengal CM attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party government on the issues alleging that the Modi-Shah duo was indulging in vindictive politics.
“They don’t have any proof. They are only harassing him (Abhishek Banerjee). When they can’t fight us politically, they are using the central agencies to scare us,” Mamata said on the interrogation of Abhishek.
