What is Money Laundering Case Against Farooq Abdullah?
The agency’s case is based on an FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 2018.
The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) had issued development funds to the JKCA amounting to Rs 112 Crores between 2001 and 2012. Farooq Abdullah was the chairman of JKCA at the time.
The 86-year-old NC chief was charge-sheeted by the central probe agency in the case in 2022.
According to ED, the case relates to siphoning off the funds of the JKCA by way of transfer to various personal bank accounts of unrelated parties, including those of JKCA office bearers, and by way of unexplained cash withdrawals from JKCA bank accounts.
