Jagan submits documents to ED



New Delhi: YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Thursday submitted documents related to his finances and investments to the Enforcement Directorate which is probing alleged money laundering and for ex violations charges against him and his associates.

A senior official of one of his companies and trusted aide of Reddy submitted the documents on his behalf here, official sources said.

The ED had recently issued summons to Kadapa MP asking him to send an authorised person who has his power of attorney to submit documents and answer questions on his behalf at its headquarters in Delhi.

"Additional documents may be sought and more summons issued in the case," they said.

The ED has registered a case under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Reddy and is also probing alleged contravention of foreign exchange rules in his financial transactions and investments.

The ED action comes days after the CBI searched various premises belonging to him.

The CBI, which has also registered a case against him, had called him recently for questioning in connection with the alleged multi-crore iron ore mining scam.

The agency is said to be probing alleged nexus between Jaganmohan and former Karnataka Minister Gali Janardhana Reddy who owns Obulapuram Mining Company.

The case was registered after ED conducted a probe to track the trail of funds pumped by the MP and his associates into the companies owned by them.
