MSCB Embezzlement Case: NCP chief Sharad Pawar to visit ED office on Friday

The case against Pawar and 70 others were filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) on September 24 in connection with the alleged ₹25,000 crores Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB) embezzlement case


After Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a case against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar, the senior opposition leader is likely to visit the ED office in Mumbai on Friday. However, Pawar has not been summoned by the central investigation agency. 

Earlier, ED filed a criminal case against Sharad Pawar and his nephew Ajit Pawar, former Shiv Sena MP Anandrao Adsul and others in connection with the alleged 25,000 crores Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB) embezzlement case.

The case against Pawar and 70 others were filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) on September 24. Reacting to this, Pawar informed that he will visit ED's office on September 27 to meet the investigating officials and will try to understand the charges against him. 

Since I will be out of Mumbai for the entire month and will remain busy in the assembly elections campaigns, I don't want to miss receiving ED's love letter. However, I am surprised by the timing of the case. I will provide whatever information is sought by ED but I won't bow down before the Delhi throne," NCP chief Sharad Pawar asserted.
