ED summons Amarinder's son for questioning tomorrow

Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a fresh summons to former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh’s son Raninder in connection with a case of forex contraventions and holding of untaxed foreign assets.

He has been asked to appear before the investigating officer in the case on July 14 at ED zonal office in Jalandhar with personal financial documents.

Raninder was previously summoned by ED last month for questioning but he sought extension citing health problems. Accepting his plea, ED has now asked him to appear on Thursday.

During questioning, he will have to explain the movement of funds to Switzerland and creation of a trust and a few subsidiaries in the British Virgin Islands. The Income Tax (IT) department had earlier investigated the case.

A court in Punjab is presently hearing the case filed by the IT Department, which acted upon of a tip-off that Raninder was holding an offshore account in France from 2011. ED suspects that Raninder violated the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
