Maneka Gambhir to appear in coal scam

Kolkata. Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee’s sister-in-law Maneka Gambhir appeared before the probe agency in the coal smuggling scam case after being summoned by the Enforcement Directorate.
Maneka Gambhir reached the CGO Complex in her Land Rover Defender at 12.40 pm at the Salt Lake office of the Enforcement Directorate and was directly driven to the ED office by the Central Armed Forces personnel posted there. ED officials are questioning him in connection with the multi-crore coal smuggling scam.
The ED faced embarrassment when it made a big mistake in timing in the notice issued to Maneka Gambhir. In fact, in the notice issued by the ED to Maneka Gambhir, the time of appearance was written at 12.30 pm on Sunday instead of 12.30 pm on Monday. On Monday morning, he was given a fresh notice and asked to appear in the central agency’s office by 12.30 pm. (IANS)
