Ranchi: Former Chief Minister Madhu Koda,
who skipped from appearing before the Enforcement Directorate,
has sought time for his appearance, saying his documents are
not ready.

According to one of his advocates, Koda has sought time
as some of his documents, wanted by the ED, were either with
the Income Tax department or with the state vigilance
department which might have taken them during their raids on
his premises.
"This documents are necessary as the ED wanted them
during his appearance. He had also sent a letter to the ED on
November 13 urging the ED to fix a date and time for his
appearance convenient after the assembly elections," he added.

The ED, however, is tightlipped on the issue even as Koda
kept department officials waiting yesterday in their camp
office here.
Koda, who is facing money laundering charges, is
currently in his Singhbhum Lok Sabha constituency to campaign
for his wife and some other candidates for the assembly
elections.

The Income Tax department had raided about 70 premises,
including Koda`s houses, and seized documents that allegedly
pointed hawala transactions and illegal investment to the tune
of over Rs 2000 crore.
