Raninder Singh, son of Punjab’s Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh who is also the President of the National Rifle Association of India, deliberately did not appear in front of ED (Enforcement Directorate at its Zonal office in Jalandhar where he was asked to present himself in front of Ed on Tuesday. Raninder Singh was summoned by ED for an ongoing probe into an illegal foreign fund case.
The summon was sent for the illegal foreign fund probe on Tuesday
The summon was sent to Raninder Singh last week for the illegal foreign funds probe and rather than appearing in front of ED on Tuesday, he sought adjournment in the matter. Jaiveer Shergill, Raninder’s lawyer made the statement that his client has sought for adjournment as he was required to present before the Parliamentary standing committee for he hearing in connection with the 2021 Olympic Games.
As the president of National Rifle Association of India Raninder was required to be present before the parliamentary panel in Association with Olympic Games
As Raninder is President of National Rifle Association of India, he was required to be present before the Parliamentary panel in association with Olympic Games in the provided capacity. The lawyer also said that Raninder has sought details from the ED in relation with the case for which he is summoned as the summons that were issued were vague. The ED filed three complaints in August in the Ludhiana court for the inspection of new documents which were filed by the income tax department in the cases against Punjab Chief Minister and his son.
The matter of the three complaints is still pending in district and sessions court in Ludhiana. In 2016, Raninder was summoned by ED for the connection with FEMA violation. But in 2016, he appeared in front of ED and said that he will cooperate with the probe and he has nothing to hide.
