MUMBAI: Former Maharashtra minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) here on Monday for questioning in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam.

The Maharashtra ACB had last month filed a charge sheet in the Mumbai Sessions Court against Chhagan Bhujbal and his family members in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan construction scam.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had on February 1 arrested Sameer Bhujbal, the nephew of Chhagan Bhujbal, in a money laundering case in Mumbai after the agency conducted multiple searches in connection with its probe against Bhujbals and others.

The Maharashtra ACB had earlier filed two FIRs against the Bhujbals and others under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to probe the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan construction scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.

Chhagan is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in several cases of money laundering.

Investigating agencies are also looking into alleged corruption in the award of contracts during his tenure as Maharashtra's PWD minister.
