New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday issued summons to four people, including former Hamirpur DM B Chandrakala and SP MLC Ramesh Yadav in the Uttar Pradesh illegal mining case. Chandrakala has been summoned for questioning on January 24 at ED's Lucknow office. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is investigating the alledged role of former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and his party in the matter.

The Enforcement Directorate has registered a money laundering case in connection with the alleged illegal mining of minor minerals in Uttar Pradesh’s Hamirpur district between 2012 and 2016.


The action has been initiated on the basis of an FIR recently lodged by the Central Bureau of Investigation on the direction of the Allahabad High Court. “The case has been registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act to probe the money trail involved in the alleged commission of offence,” said an ED official.

The CBI had earlier said that the role of mining Ministers in Uttar Pradesh between 2012 and 2016, who include Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, would also be probed. However, their names had not been mentioned in the FIR.
