Zakir Naik Sum­moned by ED Again

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

MUM­BAI: The En­force­ment Direc­torate (ED) has is­sued fresh sum­mons, also pos­si­bly the last, to con­tro­ver­sial Is­lamic preacher Zakir Naik in con­nec­tion with its money laun­der­ing probe case against him and oth­ers. Of­fi­cials said the agency is­sued the fourth sum­mons to Naik, via his lawyer and through e-mail, to join the probe even as it re­jected his plea to de­pose be­fore in­ves­ti­ga­tors via a video link from abroad. They in­di­cated the lat­est sum­mons could well pos­si­bly be the last and the agency may move court for an ar­rest war­rant against him, if he choses to ig­nore them.
