The economic intelligence agency will also probe the financial transaction and source of foreign funding of the shelter home during the investigation.“After receiving the charge sheet, we will examine it and if any financial irregularities are found, the investigation will be carried out under Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA),” an ED official said.
