Mumbai: Enforcement Directorate summons Baba Siddique

Mumbai: Former Congress legislator Baba Siddique has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the money laundering probe case related to Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) plot in Bandra. The ED has asked Siddique to appear before them on Friday to record his statement.

Last week, ED conducted searches at the premises of Congress leader Baba Siddique and some others in connection with a money laundering case.

Officials said the raids are being conducted on at least half a dozen locations in the Maharashtra capital, including that of a builder. The Enforcement Directorate, they said, has registered a criminal case against Siddique and others under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) based on a local police FIR in connection with alleged financial irregularities in the redevelopment

of a slum area in suburban Bandra.
