People’s Democratic party Senior Leader also confirmed that ED served notice to PDP president’s mother.

Mehbooba was also being investigated in a “recruitment scam” at Jammu and Kashmir bank, but she has described such actions as vindictive politics. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) earlier arrested PDP spokesperson, Waheed Parra, who was later bailed out by a Court.

He was however rearrested by Jammu and Kashmir police for “funding separatist” activities in Kashmir . The arrest drew a furious reaction from Mehbooba who was warned of action by police.
