Ban on enforcement notice issued to former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in money laundering case Delhi High Court Refused.
People’s Democratic Party leader Mehbooba Mufti has been under house arrest for more than a year after the special status for the state of Jammu and Kashmir was revoked in 2019. He was released from house arrest before the corona virus lockdown last year.
The Enforcement Branch, which is probing the money laundering case, had issued a notice to PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti to appear in person at his Delhi office on March 15.
PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti has filed a case in the Delhi High Court seeking an injunction against the notice issued by the Enforcement Division. As a result, Mehbooba Mufti did not appear in person at the Enforcement Division office on the 15th.
In this context, a notice was sent to Mehbooba Mufti on behalf of the Enforcement Division asking him to appear in person again on the 22nd.
The case filed by Mehbooba Mufti in this context came up for hearing today before High Court Judge DN Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appeared on behalf of the Enforcement Division.
Senior Advocate Nithya Ramakrishnan appeared on behalf of Mehbooba Mufti.
Attorney Nithya Ramakrishnan argued that “enforcement officials should not compel Mehbooba Mufti to appear in person.
Judges DN Patel and Jasmeet Singh said, “We cannot grant any relief to the petitioner and the enforcement division cannot bar the notice.”
