ED to probe money laundering case against NCP leader Sharad Pawar

Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, named in the money laundering case by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), will present himself in the ED office this afternoon. Pawar said on Wednesday that "I came to know about the ED case on Tuesday. I will cooperate fully with the investigating agency." Pawar said that it is the right of the agency to investigate the matter and he will go to the ED office in South Mumbai at around 2 pm on Friday.

He said, "I believe in the constitution of the country. I have never been a director in any bank. But I will fully cooperate with the ED and provide whatever information they need." The ED has filed a case against Pawar and his nephew Ajit Pawar as well as other politicians and officials in the alleged scam of Rs 25,000 crore in the Maharashtra State Co-operative Bank (MSSB). In protest, hundreds of NCP activists protested outside the ED office here.

This statement of Sharad Pawar has come after the performance of the workers. Maharashtra assembly elections are due on October 21 next month. Earlier, due to this move of ED, a political stir has arisen in the state. A month ago, the Bombay High Court ordered the Mumbai Police to register an FIR in the MSCB case.
