NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Ajit Pawar booked by ED

Agency News

Mumbai, Sep 24 : The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a money-laundering case against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar, his nephew Ajit Pawar, several other politicians and officials in the Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB) scam, worth around Rs 25,000 crore, officials said here on Tuesday.

The ED’s move against political bigwigs came after the Bombay high court ordered the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the city police to probe and file cases against the Pawars and others in the matter, setting politicians scurrying.

Following the EOW’s first information report (FIR) in late August, the ED filed its case today. (UNI)
