Raninder Singh, son of PPCC president Capt Amarinder Singh, was questioned for four hours in the Enforcement Directorate office here today regarding suspected violations of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) in the UK-based Jacaranda Trust case. Appearing for the first time on the third summons issued to him, Raninder was given a questionnaire running into eight pages. The questions pertained to his family background, property details, movable assets and account details, ED sources said. Raninder, who was accompanied by his lawyer and AICC spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill, has been told to re-appear along with his and his wife’s income tax details and his travel record since 2007.

 

Today, he had brought along his passport and bank account details, copies of which he submitted. Coming out of the ED office, he said, “I cannot comment on the case since the investigation is in progress.” Shergill said there were no allegations in the summons. Asked if details of any Swiss bank had been sought or furnished, he said, “There are no such accounts.” Raninder, president of the National Rifle Association of India, had missed the last summons on July 14, citing preparations for shooters headed for the Olympics. He had sought an adjournment last month on medical grounds. As he appeared today, the Capt loyalists who accompanied him included Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjit Singh, former MLA Jagbir Brar and Jalandhar Urban party president Rajinder Beri.
