Court summons wife of Hasan Ali Khan



Mumbai: The special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Court today sent summons to Rema Khan, wife of Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan to appear before it on July 4.

The Enforcement Directorate had moved a complaint before the court saying that despite repeated summons sent, Rema was not appearing before them.
