New Delhi, Nov 22: The Enforcement Directorate is all set to question controversial meat exporter Moin Quereshi. The ED had booked Qureshi under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in 2015.
He is also facing charges under the IT Act and has been accused of not disclosing income of Rs 20 crore.
Qureshi considered to be a very influential person has been accused of laundering several 100 million dollars across the world. If convicted he could face up to ten years in jail.
Last year the Income Tax Department had handed over a dossier to the ED in which it had detailed Qureshi's foreign accounts apart from the several hawala routes which he had created to allegedly amass disproportionate income. In February the IT department had raided his home and seized Rs 20 crore.
Qureshi who returned to India has now been told by the ED to depose before it in the case. It may be recalled that Qureshi was stopped at the Delhi airport by the Immigration Department based on a look out circular issued by the ED.
He however showed the immigration officials a court order of another IT case in which there were no restrictions. While the ED had been informed about him he was allowed to go before the team arrived to question him.
