Sena MP Sanjay Raut gets ED summons
Raut told the media that he was yet to get a notice from the ED and once he gets it, "we will ask for more time to attend the inquiry".
Pune: Shiv Sena spokesman and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Raut was on Monday summoned by the Enforcement Directorate and asked to appear on Tuesday on the Patrachal land case.
Raut told the media that he was yet to get a notice from the ED and once he gets it, “we will ask for more time to attend the inquiry”.
Earlier, the ED had seized Sanjay Raut’s assets in Mumbai and Alibag in the same case in April. This included Sanjay Raut’s residence in Mumbai.
It is alleged that a scam of Rs 1,034 crore was committed in the Patrachal land case in Goregaon. It was also alleged that Raut had bought a plot of land in Alibag. The cost of these plots is said to be around Rs 60 lakh. It is also alleged that the land was bought cheap by threatening the locals.
The ED had also arrested Praveen Raut, a close friend of Sanjay Raut, in the Patrachal land scam case.
