The Enforcement Directorate today issued summons to Trinamool Congress leaders Sovan Chatterjee, Sultan Ahmed and Iqbal Ahmed to appear before it in the next seven days.

"Today summons have been issued to Sovan Chatterjee, Sultan and Iqbal Ahmed for appearing before the directorate in the next seven days," an ED official told news agency PTI. Sovan Chatterjee, Trinamool MLA and Mayor of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC), along with Sultan Ahmed, TMC MP and Iqbal Ahmed, MLA from the same party and Deputy Mayor of KMC were shown in the Narada tapes as allegedly accepting cash. Iqbal Ahmed and Sultan Ahmed were already interrogated by the CBI in the case.

The TMC MP told the CBI that he had taken Rs 7 lakh from Mathew Samuel of Narada News for his "election expenses", but could not submit any document to support his claim, agency sources said today. Ahmed, named as an accused in a CBI FIR, failed to give satisfactory answers to queries of the investigating team probing the Narada sting case and would be called for questioning again, the sources said here.
