Farooq Abdullah, National Conference president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, has challenged an Enforcement Directorate (ED) order attaching his residential and commercial properties worth nearly Rs 12 crore, reported Press Trust of India.
Hasnain Masoodi, the party’s member of parliament, said the petition challenging the ED order was filed before the Jammu and Kashmir High Court here on Wednesday. It is scheduled to come up for a hearing on Friday.
In December, the ED had attached the properties worth Rs 11.86 crore in Kashmir and in Jammu, alleging that they were the proceeds of crime in a scam related to the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association.
Masoodi said the properties attached by the ED were either ancestral or acquired before the alleged offence took place.
