Patna: Pooja Singhal, mines and industries secretary of Jharkhand will be appearing before the Enforcement Directorate at Ranchi on Tuesday.

The 2000 batch IAS officer has been summoned by ED in connection with the Saturday raids at 20 places in the country and her Ranchi bungalow.

ED had arrested her chartered accountant, Suman Kumar Singh on Sunday following recovery of Rs 20 crores cash from his residence.

ED had questioned Abhisek Jha, second husband of Pooja Singhal for the two consecutive days.

On Monday evening, two women relatives of CA were also called by ED with documents as CA had claimed the huge cash recovered from his house belonged to his family.

On Monday morning, ED again searched the Pulse super speciality hospital at Ranchi constructed with a cost of Rs 125 crores. Hospital is owned by Abhisek Jha.

JMM general secretary, Supriyo Bhattacharya on Monday alleged ED was putting pressure on CA to implicate Jharkhand chief minister, Hemant Soren in the cash recovery.
