ED issues fresh summons to NCP MLA Jayant Patil in money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued fresh summons to NCP Maharashtra president and MLA Jayant Patil for questioning in a money laundering case linked to alleged financial irregularities at now-defunct financial services firm IL&FS.

 Issued the first summons to appear on May 12, but asked for a delay of about 10 days, citing some personal and official commitments.

The politician has now been asked to appear on May 22, sources said. A former home and finance minister, Patil is also the state president of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and is a seven-term legislator.

He told reporters last week that he never had any association or financial dealings with IL&FS.

The alleged payment of some “commission amount” by some of the accused companies to entities associated with Patil is under the agency’s scrutiny and he is expected to be questioned about these transactions and his statement recorded under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The agency recently launched fresh action in the 2019 case after it raided the Mumbai offices of Deloitte Haskins and Sells and BSR and Associates, the Indian arm of global accounting firm KPMG, of two former IL&FS auditors.
