Last year in August, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had raided Khan and another former minister R Roshan Baig's residence, allegedly in connection with the I-Monetary Advisor (IMA) ponzi scheme worth Rs 4,000 crore in which thousands of people, mostly Muslims, were duped of their hard-earned money.
Khan had appeared before the ED several times.
A four-time MLA, Khan was earlier with the JD(S) and is now with the Congress party.
