Shiv Sena leader and Maharashtra Transport Minister Anil Parab on Tuesday did not appear before the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a money laundering case, and instead sought two weeks' time.
The ED had issued summons to Parab, directing him to appear before its south Mumbai office on Tuesday for questioning in connection with the money laundering case registered against former state home minister Anil Deshmukh.
Parab wrote a letter to the ED through his lawyer Shardul Singh, seeking two weeks' time to appear citing prior commitments. The Sena leader also sought details of the probe and "the point of investigation" which necessitated the issuance of summons.
The nodal agency began probe against Deshmukh after the CBI registered a corruption case against the NCP leader on the basis of allegations made by former Mumbai Police commissioner Param Bir Singh.
