Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is facing trouble with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) issuing a show cause notice to him in connection with an alleged foreign exchange violation case against him.

Officials said the notice for violation of forex funds to the tune of Rs 2 crore has been issued under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). The notice came after a probe in the case.

Khan, the nephew of iconic singer late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, has been given 45 days to submit his response.

Officials said the ED had initiated a FEMA investigation against him and his associates in 2014 after the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) intercepted

Khan and his manager, Marrouf Ali Khan, at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here in 2011 for allegedly carrying an undeclared amount of $1.24 lakh and some other instruments in foreign currency.

The ED took over the case after this and obtained records of the said cash from the RBI. The singer was questioned by the ED in the past.

He claimed that he had done nothing wrong. He also said they were carrying a large amount of cash because they were travelling in a group and the act was inadvertent.
