Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate has summoned ICICI Bank’s former CEO Chanda Kochhar and her husband Deepak Kochhar in connection with the Videocon money laundering case.

Chanda Kochhar is asked to make a personal appearance before the ED in Delhi on May 3, with a detailed list of movable and immovable assets owned by her.

 

Deepak Kochchar and his brother Rajiv have been asked to depose on April 30 before the investigating officer (IO) of the case and record their statements under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The summons were served to them last week.

They are required to assist the IO in taking the probe forward. They have been questioned in the past too at the ED office in Mumbai after the central agency conducted raids in this case on March 1.

The searches were conducted at the premises of Chanda Kochhar, her family and Venugopal Dhoot of Videocon Group in Mumbai and Aurangabad. The ED has registered a criminal case under the PMLA early this year against Chanda and Deepak Kochhars, Dhoot and others.
