Kolkata: Actor turned TMC MP Nusrat Jahan has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), asking her to appear before the investigation officials at the CGO Office, Salt Lake, on September 12 (Tuesday) in relation to her alleged association with a real estate firm in the city, official sources said on Tuesday.
The central agency also summoned 7 Sense Infrastructure Private Limited's director, Rakesh Singh, at 11 am on the same date, the sources said.
The summons happened after a group of senior citizens lodged a complaint with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) accusing the real estate firm, Seven Sense Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd., of cheating by promising them flats in the New Town area, in the northeastern part of the city.
The ED, on its part, filed an enforcement case information report (ECIR) on the issue after getting complaints from the alleged deprived home buyers.
As per the complaints received by the central agency, the firm allegedly collected several crores of rupees from the investors, promising them residential flats within four years. But those promises have not been fulfilled yet.
Tollywood actor Nusrat Jahan, who represented the Basirhat Lok Sabha seat in North 24 Parganas, told a media conference on August 2 at the Press Club, Kolkata, that "I am not involved in any wrongdoing or any form of fraudulent practice. I resigned as its director long ago, in March 2017. I don’t know why I am being falsely blamed.'
' Before addressing the media person, Nusrat Jahan said, "I have not come here to give any clarification as I have not committed any wrong. A media trial is going on, and I have to make my stand clear," she added.
A few days later, on August 6, she, along with actor Yash Dasgupta, told media persons that the ED would not summon any more. (UNI)
