IL&FS scam: Ex MNS MLA Sardesai quizzed by ED

Agency News

Mumbai, Sep 5 : The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday interrogated Maharashtra Navnirman Sena leader and former MLA Nitin Sardesai, who is a confidant of MNS president Raj Thackeray, in connection of IL&FS scam, official sources said.

Sardesai’s probe by the ED came soon after Thackeray was summoned two weeks back and subjected to nearly eight hours grilling on August 22. Both Sardesai and Thackeray’s questioning pertained to alleged money-laundering and suspected irregularities in the loans extended to Kohinoor CTNL by the Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (ILFS).

As per indications, Sardesai -- who was at the agency’s office for over six hours on Thursday -- may be summoned again by the ED for further interrogation.(UNI)
