Allahabad, May 20 (ANI): The Allahabad High Court today directed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to probe charges of money laundering against Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh.
A division bench comprising Justices Imtiyaz Murtaza and S S Tiwari asked the Enforcement Directorate to commence the probe within two weeks.
The court, which dismissed Amar Singh's petition, asked the Enforcement Directorate to submit a status report into the case within a month of the commencement of the probe.
Singh had challenged an FIR lodged at Babupurwa Police Station in Kanpur on October 15, 2009, by a local resident Shiv Kant Tripathi under various sections of the IPC, the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Money Laundering Act, accusing him of various financial irregularities when the Samajwadi Party was in power in Uttar Pradesh.
