Praful Patel dismisses his alleged links with Dawood Ibrahim's aide

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel on October 15 dismissed reports of him being summoned by Enforcement Directorate (ED) on October 18 in a land deal related to gangster Iqbal Mirchi, a close aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. He said that he has not received any notice or summons. If received notice, he would go to ED himself. While addressing mediapersons on his reports of his name appearing in a land deal related to gangster Iqbal Mirchi, Patel said, "There are speculative views and documents which may have been leaked to media. Obviously, you all are in possession of some papers which may have never been brought to my attention. At this stage everything is with court receiver of the High Court of Mumbai."
