The ED said the summons was issued after the transactions done in the account of Varsha Raut came to light.

During the hearing in the court on ED custody of Sanjay Raut on Thursday, the ED said that an amount of ₹ 1.08 crore was received from unrelated persons in the account of Varsha Raut. The Rajya Sabha MP was arrested late Sunday night after hours of raids at his residence.

The ED has alleged financial irregularities in the redevelopment of Patra ‘chawl’ and financial property transactions related to the Shiv Sena MP’s wife and alleged associates.

In April, the ED had provisionally attached assets worth over ₹11.15 crore belonging to Varsha Raut and two of his associates as part of its probe.

The attached properties are in the form of land near Palghar, Saphale (a town in Palghar) and Padgha (in Thane district) owned by Praveen M Raut, Sanjay Raut’s associate and former director of Guru Ashish Construction Pvt Ltd.

The ED had said that these properties included a flat of Varsha Raut in the Dadar suburb of Mumbai and eight plots at Kihim Beach in Alibaug, jointly owned by Varsha Raut and Swapna Patkar, wife of Sanjay Raut’s close aide Sujit Patkar. Huh.

The agency’s intensified moves come days after the Uddhav Thackeray-led coalition government collapsed due to a rebellion by Eknath Shinde, who then took over as Maharashtra chief minister with BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis as his deputy.
