Mehbooba's mother Gulshan Nazir was questioned for nearly three hours by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a money laundering case.
Gulshan Nazir, who is in her late seventies, came to the ED office along with her daughter at the agency's office located in the civil lines area here.
The central probe agency had asked Gulshan Nazir, in her late seventies, to appear before it on earlier occasions also.
They said the mother of the PDP chief has only been told that her appearance before the ED is required in a case lodged under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
62-year-old Mehbooba expressed surprise that the notice was served on her mother on the day PDP decided not to meet the Delimitation Commission.
Mehbooba's passport has also been rejected under the same clause and her petition in the Jammu and Kashmir High Court was also dismissed.
