NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned Ravi Kejriwal, the former Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) treasurer, on Sunday in the MGNREGA money scam case involving suspended IAS Pooja Singhal.
He was summoned to join the investigation and appeared before ED authorities at the Ranchi zonal office.
It should be recalled that Kejriwal was already dismissed from the JMM for alleged anti-party conduct. Singhal, the mining secretary of Jharkhand, was fired soon after she was arrested in the case.
The Enforcement Directorate has gone over her last three years of transactions to see whether there is any suspicious money trail. All of her properties were also scanned by the agency.
Suman Kumar, her chartered accountant, had four cars seized previously. Someone else had made the payments for the fancy cars, according to a source, which was odd. The ED also seized a few incriminating documents from him.
When the raids were carried out, the Directorate found cash worth about Rs 19 crore. It was rumoured to be Singhal's money. The ED will investigate the source. Singhal and her husband's statements in the case have been recorded by the ED.
