The court said there is prima facie sufficient evidence suggesting the involvement of the accused in the case.

According to reports, the summons were issued to Delhi-based Media Exim Pvt. Ltd. and its Directors R.K. Nanda and former Director J.B. Subramaniyam. The court has fixed the next date of hearing for January 7.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) in June filed a fresh charge sheet against James and three others, including the company, in its ongoing money laundering probe in the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland helicopter deal.

Earlier, an Italian court revealed that James was working as consultant in India for AugustaWestland's helicopter deal. Investigators said James is currently staying in Dubai where he has been running his companies.
