The Enforcement Directorate has questioned former Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi at its Jalandhar office in connection with the illegal sand mining case involving Channi’s nephew, Bhupinder Singh Honey, and others.
The ED has already filed a charge sheet in this connection against his Honey.
“I was summoned by the ED yesterday regarding the mining case. I attended and replied to the queries put forward by them to the best of my knowledge. A challan, in this case, has already been presented by the ED in the court. The authorities have not asked me to come again,” Channi tweeted.
The ED case is based on a two-year-old FIR.
On March 7, 2018, an FIR was lodged by the Punjab Police against more than ten accused persons.
Honey was not named in the FIR, while Kudrat Deep Singh was given a clean chit in the matter.
The ED initiated a money-laundering probe on the basis of this FIR pertaining to illegal sand mining in Punjab in November 2021.
