·1-min read

Srinagar, Jul 14 (PTI) Gulshan Nazir, mother of PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, did not appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday as it has not responded to her letter seeking details of the case in which she is to be questioned, sources close to the Mufti family said.

They said Nazir has only been told that her appearance before the ED is required in a case lodged under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

'She did not appear before the ED as the agency has not responded to a letter seeking details of the case in which she was to be questioned,' the sources said.

'Details like the case FIR or the specific allegations of transactions that she needs to answer have not been communicated so far,' they added.

Nazir was summoned on July 6 by the ED to appear before it, hours after the People's Democratic Party (PDP) decided not to meet the members of the Delimitation Commission, who were on a four-day visit to the Union Territory.

'On the day PDP chose not to meet Delimitation Commission, ED sent a summon to my mother to appear in person for unknown charges. In its attempts to intimidate political opponents, GOI doesn't even spare senior citizens. Agencies like NIA & ED are now its tools to settle scores,' Mehbooba had tweeted soon after her mother got the ED notice. PTI MIJ RC
