The case revolves around alleged discrepancies in subsidies awarded to the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) (JKCA).

Farooq Abdullah, the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, has been called to appear before the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi on May 31 in connection with the money laundering investigation into the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA). “Abdullah had failed to respond to an earlier summons. “As a result, he has been summoned for further interrogation,” an ED official said.

In a tweet on Friday, the National Conference confirmed the summons. “The ED summoning JKNC President Dr Farooq Abdullah is nothing new; many opposition parties in India do this.” He has maintained his innocence in the matter and has cooperated with investigators, and he will do so again in this instance,” the statement stated.

The agency had provisionally attached assets worth Rs 7.25 crore belonging to an alleged culprit in the case in March of this year. Farooq Abdullah’s assets were already attached by the agency in the case.
